When you are well along in your writing, consider the following points before submitting your manuscript for publication:.
In addition to the resources above, see these tips about "preparing your manuscript" from the "Publishing in the Sciences" library guide produced by the University of Michigan Library.
Preprints (scroll down a bit) are an increasingly important form of publishing. A preprint is a publicly accessible version of your research. Preprint servers are a place to publish an initial version of your research prior to seeking publication.Examples of servers that contain preprints are arXiv and SSRN. Academia.edu and ResearchGate also enable you to post preprints of your work. Make sure to check whether the journal in which you want to publish accepts manuscripts that have been pre-published as a preprint. You may want to consider publishing chapters of your dissertation as preprints.
After you get the peer review report about your journal article, consider the points in the section "Responding to peer reviews" in the Peer Review section of the University of Michigan library guide "Publishing in the Sciences."
