Publishing your academic research in peer-review journals is important; this helps grow your scientific career and gain respect from colleagues. It may also lead to a future career in scientific writing and academic publishing. To guide you in this process, the Production and Editorial staff of the Cambridge University Press journal Parasitology have arranged an open, 1-hour skills webinar to guide you through the publishing process to ensure that your manuscript will have best impact and outreach.
