Writing with Peer Support Is More Fun

By Bridget Deemer With summer fieldwork and a semester packed full of classes, there were lots of excuses to avoid writing during the beginning of my graduate work.  Writing about your science can often feel like something to leave for the end.  Waiting until you know the punchline may make some sense from a framing perspective, but you can always tweak things later.  Writing at least parts of your paper …

Associate editors as shepherds, not just gatekeepers

By Kelsey Poulson-Ellestad All scientific journals maintain editorial boards, which consist of the Editor in Chief (EiC) and associate editors who primarily solicit peer reviews and make publication recommendations to the EiC. Editors, unlike peer reviewers, are the ones ultimately making decisions about whether or not a submitted manuscript should be accepted or rejected for publication. Because of this, editors are often described as gatekeepers. This ‘gatekeeper’ narrative is not …

Writing effective titles, abstracts, and summaries

By Laura Falkenberg and Kelsey Poulson-Ellestad Journal articles are the key means of communicating scientific research. Unfortunately, academic texts are often characterized by a complicated writing style and abundance of jargon, which reduces clarity and effectiveness. This is particularly problematic for authors with a goal to make their work accessible to, and get it noticed by, researchers from different fields. Achieving these goals requires thoughtful writing. To start addressing these …

The women of the Raelyn Cole Editorial Fellowship

By Laura Falkenberg This is the last blog post I’ll be authoring as a Raelyn Cole Editorial Fellow, but also the first I wanted to write. The inspiration for this post was sparked during my Fellowship interview with the Editor-in-Chief of Limnology and Oceanography: Letters, Pat Soranno. I left that interview with all the normal worries (Did I understand the questions properly? Did I make my points clearly?), but also with …
