GNOBB members will be pleased to read a message received from Dr. Arthur G. Fitzmaurice, Ph.D., AAAS, Science & Technology Policy Fellow (AFITZMAU@nsf.gov>. The message comprises a very good news that the U.S. National Science Foundation has published a book entitled,”Excellence Everywhere: A Resource for Scientists Launching Research Careers in Emerging Science Centers. The book can be downloaded FREE using the following url: http://www.excellenceeverywhere.org/
You might find this useful publication for yourself, your graduate students, or postdoctorals who might be building their own careers soon. The resource includes chapters on hiring, getting funded, collaborating, and more. I have gone through the publication hurriedly and have found it an indispensable companion and a useful resource for the young scientists who aspire to launch a successful career in their line of specialization. Particularly useful is this publication for the scientists to guide them to choose the journal suitable for submission of their paper including the instructions they must follow to write their papers.
