Abstract

Why do you publish your research findings? It is likely that, on reflection, we can identify many reasons that are not simply related to improving the state of science or the health and well-being of those we study. The answer to this question often produces multiple reasons, such as degree requirements, career development, requirements of funders, to name but a few. The demands of these additional drivers can unintentionally influence both the quality of reporting and the slant of a paper’s message due to tight timeframes and expectations of all parties involved.
