Research Publication Writing
Predatory journal is a term, coined by Jeffrey Beall, to describe publishers who are more concerned with profit than ethics. These journals are scams. They prey on unsuspecting researchers, often targeting third tier economic areas, and masquerade as legitimate publishers. Predatory journals usually promise rapid review and publication in a leading journal. However, the reality is that these journals often have little to no peer review or editorial contributions before publication, are not indexed in research databases, and cost thousands of dollars to publish with them. Many will not notify the authors of fees until after article acceptance. Some even charge fees at submission.

Paying for somewhere to live is an unavoidable expense. Whether you rent or own it is recommended that no more than 30% of your income be spent on shelter costs. Is this 30% figure attainable for Canadians? In this post, we perform an analysis using r to find out, and make predictions for the future.We collected Census Data from the last National Household Survey, published in 2011 for this analysis. Data from the most recent Census is not available until later this year. Each result is presented as a map of Canada and embedded below are pdfs that can be zoomed in to highlight specific regions. The shelter costs as a % of gross income are white at 0% and become progressively redder as the costs increase up to 60%.

Reference managing software simplifies research publication. You don't need to keep track of who you cited, in what order, or whether your reference list includes only who you cited in the paper. Software such as Endnote and Mendeley partially automate these time-consuming tasks and make your research life easier.Unfortunately, reference managing software is not interchangeable. A MS Word document that is formatted using Mendeley, cannot be then formatted with Endnote. Reference lists though, can be interchanged between software. Therefore you can use Mendeley with one research article and Endnote for another.For each research article, it is best to have all authors use the same piece of software. However how do you choose? Which is better? "Better" is often subjective. Each piece of software has their own strengths and weaknesses. In this guide, we will compare Endnote vs Mendeley to help with your decision making.

The best way to simplify this process is to use citation managing software. Mendeley and Endnote are popular choices. You can format your research publication in your preferred style as you write, then change it accordingly to the journal's preferences. In this guide, we will explain how to style your references for journals using Mendeley.

When preparing research publications, abstracts are often overlooked. This is bad practice because along with your title, it provides the first impression of your research. If your abstract is for a research article, then readers will often decide from it whether or not to read your paper. A well-written abstract can be the difference between conference acceptance and rejection.We present a guide for writing an effective abstract, whether for your research article or conference presentation.

Conference Presentations, Research Publication Writing
We have all had to sit through terrible PowerPoint presentations. The conference speaker reads off of their slides, in a monotone voice, and puts everyone to sleep. As a researcher, you have exciting findings to showcase, and putting your audience to sleep is not the best way to gain recognition. Unfortunately, there is no formal education on creating an effective PowerPoint presentation (or speaking in front of colleagues). By following this guide, you can improve your presentations and impress your audience.
