RE: How scientific research gets published, and how you can know how to trust it

in #science3 years ago

You are not kidding about those papers being difficult to write. I know people that spend months writing up their papers and going through review process. Most describe it as the leas"fun" part of their job. Though I have been told its significantly less painful if you have a few good co-authors as you have someone to bounce ideas off, and you are all constantly reviewing each others work.

Yeah, it surely does take a long time! I have never published anything personally, so I can't really speak from my own experiences, but it sure sounds like a good idea to have some co-authors. It is also very common to write these in groups today (compared to 50 years ago when most papers were done by a single person).
