Things to keep in mind before and while you are trying to publish. Please extend with your advice.

Open access

  • open access means not only free to read but also free to reuse under certain conditions (this will be beneficial not only for the reader but also for you - the author - when you reuse figures for presentations, reviews,..)
  • open access articles are read and consequently cited more often [we need a reference here]
  • if open access is not an option, you may be able to publish a pre-print version of your article which will be freely accessible
