Lecture Title

Why do scientists write papers?

Lecture Abstract

Writing is a very important part of science; it is used to summarize, document and communicate ideas, activities and findings to others. As a scientist, we are expected to share your research work with others in various forms. Scientific writing can take many forms from a lab notebook to a project report, or from a paper in an academic journal to an article in a scientific magazine.

So, how to get published? There are so many points that any good scientific essay should follow, but which one is the best one?
