Thought this might be of interest to some.

Reposted from ecolog.


Hello, everyone! I turned a recent intern training/ professional

development workshop on "how to write and publish a scientific paper in

marine ecology and conservation" into a blog post so that others can

benefit from the resource. It is designed for beginning graduate students

and advanced undergraduates.




This post includes tips ranging from title selection to choosing the

appropriate journal to how to actually upload your paper to a journal

submission site. Examples are provided throughout.


There are many strategies for each of these tasks, and I've shared here the

ones that work well for me personally. There are other strategies and

students should seek them out to figure out what works best for you.


Please let me know what you think, feel free to suggest alternative

strategies in the comments section of the blog! And please share with

students who you think may be interested.


Thanks, all!
