Printer-friendly version
Early-career  researchers are subject to higher levels of scrutiny than ever before,  with publication in academic journals essential to how they are funded  and evaluated, and how their careers will be built. Margaret K. Merga, Shannon Mason and Julia E. Morris  share insights from their own experiences of navigating the journal  submission and publication process as ECRs, emphasising the importance  of being strategic about journal selection, understanding which  suggested revisions will actually improve a paper, and knowing what is  the right moment to contact the editor for guidance.
