Moiya is an professional in science communication in addition to being a scientist herself, so right now I wish to ask her in regards to the steps you must undergo to supply a scientific paper. How do you go from an thought to a printed paper? Why ought to we belief these scientific publications greater than different writing or information stories we discover on the web?
I’ve stated on this present earlier than to not belief articles that don’t cite their sources, however we’ve not but talked about why we should always belief these cited sources to start with. So, thanks for being right here, Moiya.
Thanks for inviting me on.
So, I get an thought, I write it down after which it’s revealed, proper?
That’s the three step model, yeah. However there’s much more beneath the hood, in any other case it wouldn’t take 5 – 6 years to get a PhD, proper? Ranging from the start, individuals say that science begins with an thought, nevertheless it begins even earlier than that. As a result of after I was beginning grad college, probably the most intimidating issues to me in regards to the scientific course of was arising with an thought. Up till then, I had been doing analysis for just a few years, however the analysis initiatives had all the time been handed to me and I’d by no means give you my very own thought or my very own thesis for a analysis venture.
It’s a must to undergo loads of coaching to get to the purpose the place you’re in a position to give you your individual thought or analysis venture. It begins with an thought, however there’s rather a lot that goes into that half as nicely.
