Last month, the library offered a series of classes on how to get started in scientific publishing. Here are a few tips that we learned:
- Review the author guidelines/instructions on your chosen journal’s website for the scope and audience of the journal and timetable for publication.
- Review the journal’s impact with Journal Citation Reports Impact Factors.
- Find trends in your subject area by creating a citation report in Web of Science. This will help to determine the top journals in a subject area.
- A strong abstract not only influences whether your paper is reviewed by a journal for publication, but whether or not it will be findable after publication.
- As an author, always use the same name so you get the citation credit! Be sure your name is consistently listed the same way in every manuscript and database listing.
- Only submit a manuscript to one journal at a time!
- Determine how authorship will be handled before you start writing.
- Create a timetable when you are writing. Factor in time for people who may be assisting you like the Research Medical Library (literature searching), Medical Graphics (figures), Scientific Publications (editing) and Biostatisticians.
