Writing and submission

Publication in peer-reviewed journals is a key part of the research process, enabling you to communicate your ideas and findings to the rest of the research community and demonstrate impact within your field. Having a track record of published papers is also important for career development and therefore a crucial step for many doctoral and early career researchers.
