Over the last few weeks, you may have noticed that we've started posting Q&As like this and this on R Voice. You may have been wondering what these are and why we've started posting them. Well, over the past few months, we, the R Voice team has had long discussions on how the community has shaped up over the past year and what else we could do to help researchers in the coming months. One big realization was that we need to have more discussions around the questions, doubts, and concerns researchers often have around academic writing and publishing. And we thought a good starting point would be to share commonly asked questions around these pain points to get discussions started. So we turned to Editage Insights to figure out the topics that researchers have doubts on.

Those of you who have read the story behind the inception of R Voice would know that our team has a history of working with researchers for over two decades. In 2012, Editage Insights was launched as a multi-lingual knowledge-sharing platform for academic authors and journals. The platform hosts free tips, advice, and resources on all aspects and stages of research and publishing, such as preparing for research, manuscript writing, journal selection and submission, peer review, publication ethics, and career advancement. Some of the R Voice Team members - @Jayashree Rajagopalan, @Andrea Hayward and @Kakoli Majumder - were involved in this project earlier The Editage Insights platform has a highly popular Q&A Forum where researchers can ask questions and get answers from our academic publication experts. Most of these questions are relevant to every researcher’s journey and we thought it would be nice to share them with you so that we can have some insightful conversations around these on R Voice too.

Feel free to share your thoughts and experiences around these questions. And if you have the time, we’d love for you to hop on to the Editage Insights QA forum and add your response as a comment there as well. That way, the researcher who has posted the question would be able to see your response and benefit from it.

Going forward, I'd encourage you to share any question you may have around academic writing and publishing and ask the R Voice community to share their experiences, advice, and suggestions.
