Welcome to Publishing a Journal Manuscript - the Groundwork

Welcome to Publishing a Journal Manuscript - the Groundwork

A guide from Springer and Edanz on writing and publishing.
You can use the links to the right to find advice on specific topics.
For those of you who prefer to listen to an instructor instead of reading we also provide videos (with Chinese subtitles if you prefer).

Why publishing your work is important

Before you begin, it may be useful to remind yourself of why publishing your work is important. You might need to publish in order to graduate, get a job, or advance your career.
But first take a moment to think about two of the most important aims of scientists:
  • To add to the body of human knowledge
  • To help yourself and others understand the nature of the universe
You can’t accomplish these goals without publishing! After all, the main way that others learn about your work is through your published articles. If you don’t publish, other researchers can’t build on your work; it will be as if you never did the research.
In other words: Your research is NOT complete until it has been published.
