Publication planning….say what?


Spread the love

In academia and medical research, the majority of my writing involved research grants and publication manuscripts. Success in one drove success in the other, a relationship that some of us saw as a “vicious cycle” and others as an “upward spiral.” More planning efforts went toward the research than the publication. Of course the main objective was to obtain and communicate good results from well-designed investigations, but equally important were tenure, professional advancement and funding to keep the lab operating.
