Publishing is an extremely important part of the process of science, and often an important part of the career of scientists and engineers. But to the early-career author (or student preparing their first publication), the peer-reviewed journal writing and publishing process can be intimidating, and possibly a bit mysterious. What are journal editors and reviewers looking for? What does it take to get your work published?
Of course, the first place to start is by doing good research on an important topic. But you still have to write a good paper. This talk will focus on what it takes to get published, and in particular how to write a good science paper. I’ll share some of my secrets on writing a good paper (OK, they’re not really secrets, but these skills are not often taught in school). The good news is you don’t have to be a good writer to write a good paper. But you do have to be a careful and knowledgeable writer. With practice, you can become a good writer as well.
