Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Submitting work to peer-reviewed journals is a daunting prospect for many young scientists. This list of resources was compiled by Caroline Sutton, PhD, Co-Action Publishing and Helle Goldman, PhD, Polar Research as part of their Spring 2012 Career Development Webinar.

During the webinar, Sutton and Goldman aimed to demystify the publishing process by explaining what happens to a manuscript after it's submitted, focusing on how submissions are evaluated. These resources and links provide helpful information on journal article publishing, including single-blind versus double-blind review, tips for authors submitting manuscripts, ethical issues (plagiarism, salami slicing, duplicate publication), understanding the fine print in publishers' contracts, open access publishing and how authors benefit from it.
