So you want to get published?

By Matin Durrani

For every researcher, getting published is the name of the game.

 IOP Publishing author guide

You might be a brilliant blogger, a terrific Tweeter or a frenetic Facebook fan, but having a scientific paper published in a professional scientific journal is still your best bet for getting your results recorded, archived, peer-reviewed and disseminated.

If you’re new to the publishing game, however, IOP Publishing, which publishes, has brought out a handy little online introductory guide.

Aimed at early-career researchers, the guide is designed to provide an overview of academic publishing and advice on how to make the most of the process for sharing your research.

There are sections on choosing where to submit your paper, how to go about writing it, how the peer-review process operates, and what to do when you receive your referee’s report.

Check out the guide to getting published.

PS Talking of Facebook, we’ve started posting “images of the day” on our Facebook page. They seem to be quite popular, so let us know if you have any suggestions.
