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.

All the hard work has finally paid off. You are ready to submit your research article to your target journal. It is a good idea before you hit "submit" to double check that you have met all the journals requirements and included all relevant information.You do not want to wait a couple of weeks just to receive rejection from the editor for having a title that is too long, or for failing to include line numbers. In this post, we provide an easy to follow research article submission checklist, ensuring that you can catch anything you may have missed.

Researchers are under immense pressure to publish. Without publications your career will stagnate and you could find yourself unemployed and unemployable. This difficult situation is often described as "Publish or Perish." A simple way to get early publications is to convert your PhD thesis into journal articles.There is significant effort involved to publish PhD thesis work, but the vast majority of the work is already done. You reviewed the literature, planned and carried out the experiment, analyzed the data, and made conclusions. However, writing a thesis is different than writing a journal article. In this guide, we offer tips on how to convert your PhD thesis into journal articles.

Data and Statistical Analysis
There are so many statistical software packages that it is hard to choose. Should you use SAS, SPSS, Stata, Statistica, SigmaPlot, R, or even Excel for your data and statistical analysis?We are big advocates of using R. More than a piece of software, R is a language and environment for data, statistics, and graphics. It can perform just about any statistical technique (linear and nonlinear modelling, classification, clustering, time-series analysis, etc.) and be used to create graphics for research publication.There is a steep learning curve when learning any statistical software, but R seems to be known for being difficult to use at first. We encourage everyone to stick with it. Try using R Commander, a graphical user interface (GUI), if you are nervous about coding at first. When you get more comfortable, you can then transition to using RStudio (another GUI) and swirl (a tool that teaches R directly within the console).

Research Publication Writing
Before submitting your article for peer review, it is important to make sure that the reference style of the journal is followed. Each journal will have their own preferred style for the in-text citations and the reference list. Failure to follow the journal reference style could result in immediate rejection by the editor. 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.

Conferences are fantastic places to give an initial version of your current project when your research is dynamic and evolving. Fellow conference goers provide significant sources of initial feedback, especially from scholars you don’t know or with whom you interact less frequently. In addition, many conferences have associated journals, which have special editions with articles drawn from the conference. Given that journals often prefer already curated submissions to cold entries, your previous acceptance to the conference may help your submission to the associated journal.  A refined journal article looks very different from a conference paper. While a conference paper conveys one point as clearly and simply as possible, a journal article should be nuanced, complex, and explicit, and many distinct examples may be needed. There is room for improvising during a conference; it’s often valuable to read your audience and determine how much explanation is needed for an idea, concept, or example. However, a journal article must be polished and understandable without additional information. Here are some specific ideas to incorporate into your polished, publishable article:
