Writing & Publishing

Whether you are studying for a degree or a senior scientist, writing and getting published are often daunting and bewildering processes that can lead to frustration and exasperation. On this page, I've attempted to organise a series of blog articles that I've written into a logical framework so that you can explore them, and hopefully use them to improve your writing and understanding about the publishing process. 

There is now a new book based on this site: How to write a PhD in Biological Sciences: a guide for the uninitiated which is published with CRC Press. To read it for free, visit: http://www.howtowriteaphd.org/

To buy your own copy go to: www.routledge.com/9781032080208

Another new book on publishing: How to publish in the Biological Sciences: a guide for the uninitiated - is also published with CRC Press. To read it for free, visit:  http://www.howtopublishscience.org/

To buy your own copy go to: www.routledge.com/9781032116419

The site is a work in progress, and you can expect the framework to be expanded and explored over time as more blog articles are written. Each blog article is inspired by interactions with my students, people that I meet in our community, or through my experience as an editor. If you can't find something that you're looking for, or simply want to suggest a new topic for a blog, feel free to get in touch.
