Writing a scientific article is a precise and often difficult task, particularly for those attempting it for the first time.

Efficient submission of papers requires some familiarity with scientific publishing and its current trends, which include open access, fast track publishing, and enhanced publications.

Publications play an important role in the evaluation of a researcher's work, hence the usefulness of understanding and applying the concepts of bibliometrics and impact factor.

The trainer provided a quick introduction to these elements, with overviews, tips, and links to aid users who can then seek further information relevant to their respective disciplines.

The trainer was Ms Isabelle Gerard who is the head of the joint Publications Service of the MRAC and the RBINS.

The workshop ended with practical exercises.
