Getting your work published is a major milestone for any academic. So what are the best ways to go about it?
In this Windback Wednesdays series Naturejobs is exploring the world of academic publishing. It’s a competitive market, with scientist young and old continuously under pressure to get their work into the best academic journals. Whether or not this will continue to be the case remains an open discussion, but in the mean time, we’ve got some archived content filled with hints and tips on how to get your work noticed.
To kickstart our newest set, we’ve dug up Writing: The habits of successful authors from the Naturejobs blog, where Bernd Pulverer, head of scientific publications at the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO), shared some of his insights with attendees at the Naturejobs Career Expo in Heidelberg, Germany.
For the upcoming podcast where we will be exploring scientific publishing online, we’re interested in learning about your online reading habits: do you prefer to read academic papers in HTML or in PDF format? And why? Please leave your thoughts in the comments below, or on Facebook, or you can let @naturejobs know on Twitter.
