Structured training in paper preparation

  • There are 25,000+ peer-reviewed journals, publishing more than 1.5 million articles/year, with a three to eight percent increase/year.
  • In addition, several hundred journals appear each year from the estimated 2000+ publishers in existence.
  • The typical cost of purchasing a single article is in the 30 to 40 dollar range, while subscriptions for libraries are in the thousands of dollars per journal.
  • By 2025 there will be around 250 million University graduates worldwide, generating 1 million new researchers per year. These graduates and researchers will need to access the scientific literature but also will need to publish their own research.

However, structured training at Universities and Schools for students and scientists in the area of scientific publishing is sorely lacking.

For researchers, faculty and students

I offer a training program in the distinct aspects of the writing and publication process, with on-site exercises, including:

  • Paper preparation with a focus on journal selection and discussion of “predatory publishers” in the Open Access era
  • Description of Open Access tools and methodologies: from repositories to novel resources on the web
  • Discussion of research misconduct in a broad form
  • Discussion of the current trends and tools for the “dissemination” of your work


Schedule: Full courses are 1 week long. Workshops are 3 hours.
At your location in: Libraries, University Departments or Scientific Meetings
