  In this talk I will offer a unique insight into the publishing process of a high-impact energy journal, from the perspective of a recent energy researcher-turned-editor. I will first introduce Joule, the new high-impact energy journal from Cell Press, and our Editorial team. Next, I will motivate and demonstrate Joule’s strong interest in serving the energy research community in China. I will then shed light on the life of a scientific editor, the manuscript life cycle, and the peer review process. Finally, I will give additional detail describing editor considerations when evaluating manuscripts and provide advice and provide typical well-written examples to authors from an editor’s point of view.
