SCIENTIFIC

PUBLICATIONS

 

Publishing research findings in peer-reviewed journals is an integral part of science communication. To master the art of scientific publishing, it is crucial to combine expertise, skills and experience. Writing a dental scientific article is like writing a biological story in a few short chapters, according to a very specific set of rules.
