So far in this series, we have selected a journal and checked its requirements (Episode 1), started our first draft (Episode 2), learned how to avoid many common manuscript mistakes (Episode 3), and learned how to display our data and figures (Episode 4).
Welcome to Episode 5 - it’s time to write your ABSTRACT, TITLE, and KEYWORDS!
Join research publishing expert Dr. Dean Meyer, SEO wizard Adam Goulston, and Edanz moderator Scott McCleary and for an unmissable hour of tips and tricks on how to get YOUR paper published by journals and discovered by global readers.

Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform. Clicks to view the full text will be directed to the publisher website, where only users with subscriptions or access through their institution are able to view the full article.
