Whether you are a veteran researcher or just beginning your academic career, you are probably familiar with the concept of peer review. In an ideal world, peer reviewers would politely request changes and suggest changes that would significantly improve your publications. In reality, peer review can be rude and unproductive. Here are some suggestions to improve both sides of the peer review conversation. Continue reading Peer review: who, why, and how
Are you having a difficult time writing a scientific paper? Do you want to publish your manuscripts in more prestigious journals? You are not alone.
It is becoming harder to receive recognition for your manuscript (in the form of citations) when competing against the approximate 1.8 million articles published each year and growing at 3% per year. At some established journals, rejection rates are on the rise because of an increased number of submissions.
I’ve just released a free e-course, “Publish that Paper,” to help you polish your scientific manuscripts and boost your publication record. You’ll learn tips and techniques that will help your papers get accepted quickly. Editors will appreciate the improved results and colleagues will praise your clear data.
“To become a world-class scientist today one must…be able to navigate the publishing process with skill and speed, as well as write with clarity, accuracy, and grace.“ Monica Bradford, Executive Editor, Science
The content in these lessons is meant to be general enough to apply to manuscripts across all STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, medicine) fields.
“Publish that Paper” is a 14-part e-course that I developed to help scientists clearly communicate their research. At the end of the lessons, you will have amassed a list of resources and guidelines that you can refer back to as often as needed.
Tell me what you need to learn about scientific publication. What is the biggest thing you’re struggling with today? I’d love to hear from you.
Do you have questions about the e-course? Please email me and I will be happy to help out.
