BA Super Help Desk ("Publish Soon, Publish Often, a Guide to Scientific Publications")

Advancement in academia typically depends upon Scientific publishing. The more you publish, the better the first job, the higher the raise, and the faster the promotion. Sadly only 3% of publications come from developing countries, despite the fact that 27% of the scientists live in developing countries and 80% of the scientists.

In many countries bright young people want to do research and publish, have to publish, but they do not. A primary reason for this is Stataphobia which is the fear of research design and statistics, and not having access to people who can help. Eighty percent of all rejected articles are due to poor research methods.

A group of global research experts collaborating with the Library of Alexandria want to help you to publish your research. We have developed the BA Research methods help desk to provide assistance you for research design help to do research and publish.

Please forward to your students and friends who want to publish:
