I work part-time because of my disability, but I have almost 80 articles published, 2 books, and 2 more that are due next year.
Having a good publication track record has opened up many opportunities for me that are generally not available to part-timers.
Often, authors don't know how to handle these and may do nothing for months (or even years).
Here are a couple of ways that you need to deal effectively with them.
I often characterize publication as half skill, half attitude.
Approach this process with confidence and persistence. Before you write a single sentence, know where your article is going.
So many professionals write the article, and then start shopping for a journal.
Writing is one of the most important skills for you to acquire, whether you are in academics or clinical practice.
Remember, science moves forward via communication among scientists-and articles are the way by which you do this.
