The aim of this webinar was to provide insides on how to publish your scientific results successfully and how to advertise your findings to both the scientific community and the general public.
The webinar was organized in two parts:
In the first part, Executive Editor of the open access journal Ocean Science, Dr. Mario Hoppema (Alfred Wegener Institute) talked about how to prepare your data and manuscript to meet journal's requirements. Dr. Hoppema provided tips on the technical side of paper preparation and writing from the viewpoint of the editor.
