Guidelines and Resources for Scientific Writing & Publishing for early career and less experienced researchers.

This Toolkit is designed to help published and unpublished researchers become respected members of the international scientific community by improving their ability to publish articles in peer reviewed scientific journals. It was prepared particularly for junior researchers from non-English speaking, or developing countries and aims to increase authors’ confidence in writing and submitting articles.

It consists of modules, each phrased in terms of a key need on topics such as how to identify the most appropriate journal for a paper, how to prepare a publishable manuscript and how to negotiate the peer review process. Some modules also suggest resources from a variety of books, articles, websites and other sources.

The main themes of the modules are:

  • General Writing Tips
  • Peer Review for Authors
  • Publishing and Editorial Issues
  • Ethics for Authors
  • Other Resources

The Toolkit is sponsored by a variety of organizations, including the European Association of Science Editors and the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors.

We will continue to expand and refine the content of this toolkit. Please keep visiting as we develop the modules, and let us know if you would like to see anything specific added!
