chapter 9increasing your impact:getting published“ A word after a word after a word is power.”margaret atwoodHaving an internationally recognized role inadvancing science requires that you make yourname familiar to people far from your own backyard.Science is not an exclusive club, but as inmost human activities, people will be more opento you and your work when they know you. Thepublished literature is the major route by whichother scientists will come to have that criticalsense of familiarity that will make you a “knownfactor” and a welcomed colleague to otherresearchers around the world.Your scientific success hinges on several factors.Your ability to produce a body of publications thatyour colleagues will notice and respect is thekey to your success. Granting agencies, otherjournals, and your peers around the world look atyour publication record as proof of your researchaccomplishments. The importance of publishingexcellent work in well-regarded internationaljournals cannot be overstated. No other way ofbecoming well known matters as much.For your career to really flow well, you mustalso develop into a recognized local, regional andnational authority. If your work is known inLondon, Washington, Paris and Geneva, but utterlyunfamiliar to those who make decisions about thecourse of science at your own institution or in yourown country, your career progress will likely stall. Atthe same time, the people you train, the work theydo with you, and the work they may someday doon their own extend your ideas and your influencein the scientific community at home and far away.UnderstandingPublishingOnce you have completed several years ofgraduate school or medical school and postdoctoralresearch, you should be familiar with writingscientific papers and the peer review process forscientific publishing. But you may not yet havebeen able to publish in the high-impact, mostlyinternational journals that will build your reputation.To call a journal “high impact” is a description notonly of its prestige and quality, but also of howfar into the consciousness of scientists aroundthe world ideas published in it go. This chapterprovides some tips on planning for publication,and some tricks of the trade to help you get yourwork out in front of other scientists.increasing your impact: getting published121
