Publishing articles

Writing for academic journals can be very competitive, but is a fantastic way to share your research.

When writing a new piece:

  • Consider the logic of the information that you are presenting
  • Make your argument clear throughout the paper
  • Choose an experienced senior colleague to be your main point of contact for help and advice.
  • Consider your audience. They may be outside of your immediate field of study
  • Thoroughly explain your methods. Further details can often be added in an appendix
  • Consider pre-registering your study design and methods
