How to get published in a scientific journal

Every scientist aspires to get published in a scientific journal. The pressure of ‘publish or perish’ is something every researcher faces, and getting published in a high-quality journal helps move on to the next rung (or even skip a few rungs) up the ladder. The journey from finishing a scientific study and getting it into the public eye can be long and strenuous. According to an Elsevier report, 1.8 million authors submitted 1.3 million manuscripts in 2015, however, only 400,000 (approximately 22%) of them were published. Nature publishes only 8% of the 200 papers it receives each week. So while you may be making significant progress in your research in the confines of your lab, telling the world about it involves quite a few barriers — and also requires years of patience.
