How to write a paper to communicate your research? 101 on publishing your work.

Publishing your research work is very important in your career. Some people argue that if you don't publish your work or your work is not publishable then you have not done anything. It is said that if your research doesn't generate papers, it might just as well not have been done. "Interested and unpublished" is equivalent to "non-existent".

Writing your research findings and publishing them on good journals requires extra effort and skill than just research. Publishing work should be a part of research itself. The effective communication of scientific research is vital both to the scientific community and to a scientist’s career.

Recently, American Chemical Society (ACS) has produced series of video interviews with top figures of the related field to assist authors and reviewers in understanding and improving their experience with the processes of writing, submitting, editing, and reviewing manuscripts.

This time, I want to share an interview with Prof George Whitesides from Harvard University. He is the chemistry professor and has published more than one thousand research articles.

If you are looking for answers of following questions then listen and watch his interview.
  • When should you begin to think about writing up your research for publication?
  • How do your students handle your approach of writing while you research?
  • How do new technologies help scientists communicate their work?
  • How many drafts does each paper undergo? Do you have your papers undergo an internal review?
  • Do authors need to be thinking of marketing their articles?
  • How concerned should I be about the title and abstract of my papers?
