Publication is not easy for most authors, and it involves a lot of work and a lot of time. Your time is valuable and so it is very important to organize yourself before you start writing – this will save you time (and problems) later. This module looks at the things you should think of before you start writing your article. It includes issues such what you want to write, where you want to publish it, and who you will write it with.
By the end of this module, you will know the key items to be considered before starting to write up your research.
