|Publication is the primary conduit by which scientists and engineering professionals disseminate their research. “Publish or perish” is a concept heard in academic circles. This is a touchy subject for some who work in fields that may not have traditionally published as much as other disciplines. However, as science becomes more collaborative and more non-traditional publication venues are embraced (e.g., blogs and open access journals), the concept of “publish or perish” is undergoing some transition. The bottom line is that no matter the forum in which you publish, metrics can be (and are) applied to journals, conferences, publishers, and even individual researchers. There is simply no getting around it – you will be measured and will become known by your publications, or lack thereof. Good scientific writing is crucial to your discipline, your career, and the business objectives of PNNL.|
