Abstract:   The aim of the talk is to bring attention to common pitfalls before and during the journals publishing process. It is designed not to teach how to write a paper, but instead to offer advice on presenting a paper in the best possible light, choosing the correct journal to send it to and highlighting the most common reasons why a paper is rejected.
