The aims of the presentation are to provide young and aspiring scientists with an overview of the scientific publishing enterprise, including how to write a paper, where to publish, how to deal with authorship issues, and how to avoid the major and minor ethical dilemmas that constantly present themselves during an individual’s research career. This presentation will describe the challenges and rewards of publishing early in one’s professional career, including authorship issues, timetables, ethical dilemmas, and pressures to publish. This presentation consists of practical guidance about what journal editors are looking for in a journal article (e.g., originality, sound methodology, good writing, etc.) and what to do when the editor asks for a revision.
