Why is publishing a journal article so challenging?

Publishing your research can be massively overwhelming. There’s a huge learning curve, especially for those doing it for the first time.

One of the reasons for this is that publishing a journal article is about so much more than getting words on paper. You probably already have a lot of experience and skills writing essays and/or lab reports. But a journal article is something completely different.

  • There are also the figures, and tables, and references.
  • You must cite these properly.
  • You may have to learn new software to do this.
  • You must choose a journal.
  • You must follow the journal’s style guide.
  • You may have to navigate co-authorship with collaborators and/or your supervisor.
  • You must work through a cumbersome online submission portal.
  • All of this, plus there are many unspoken conventions about language and structure.
  • Then, you get the reviews back and you have whole new set of skills to learn for successfully responding to the reviewers in a way that encourages acceptance by the journal.  

Phew – that’s a lot.

Should I publish a journal article?

That's a hard YES.

In the competitive academic job market, the sooner you start and the more peer-reviewed journal articles you have, the better.

Articles are not the only measure of success. But, publishing journal articles opens doors to postgraduate programs, scholarships, degrees, grants, jobs, awards, and promotions.

Is this you?

You are smart, hard-working, and passionate about your research project…


✔ you want to publish a journal article, but don’t know exactly how.

✔ you lack practical support from your time-poor supervisor.

✔ you have started an article, but you keep getting stuck.

✔ you sit at your computer all day, but you don’t make good progress on your article.

✔ you know you need help, but you are unsure about how to get it.

✔ you feel discouraged or unmotivated.

✔ you just keep reading new papers and don’t make progress on your own.

✔ you’ve just realized your awesome dissertation will not be enough to make you competitive on the post-PhD job market.

✔ you are worried about not graduating, not getting a scholarship, not getting a research grant, not getting a job, not getting a promotion.

✔ you want to aim for the highest-impact journals, but you don't feel confident.

✔ you want to develop your skill set and become a publication-generating machine

If you answered yes to any of the above, then the Publish That Paper program is here for you.

Book Discovery Call

By now you might be wondering who I am and why I've created this.

Hi. I'm Dr Jayne Wilkins.

I have more than 12 years experience as an academic writer, reviewer, and editor. I've published as first-author in the top journals Nature and Science. I've helped many postgrads publish their first peer-reviewed journal article.

I created the Publish That Paper program because I know that universities rarely offer practical, day-to-day, one-on-one support through the entirety of the publication process.

I can guide you step-by-step through this process.

I can teach you strategies so that you can work less, but achieve more.

I can make the whole process of writing and publishing easier for you.

I can help you smash your publication goals.

If this sounds good to you, book a free Discovery Call. Let's chat about where you are at, what your roadblocks are, and whether the Publish that Paper program is a good fit for you.

Chat With Me

This is why I do what I do.

Jess von der Meden
published by PLOS ONE

"Working with Jayne on preparing and submitting my first manuscript for publication was transformative, turning an overwhelming task into an enjoyable learning and collaborative experience.

Jayne’s communication is prompt and clear, she provided insightful and constructive feedback on all aspects of the manuscript, and her instructive advice at each step of the way helped to demystify the submission and revision process.

Her thorough and supportive guidance boosted my confidence and ensured the success of my first paper!"

Amy Hatton
published by Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports

"Jayne encouraged me to publish my first paper, and was instrumental in its success, helping me to crystallize my ideas, get them into the correct format and create a paper that I am still very proud of.

There are so many small things to consider when publishing that can be very intimidating at first, I feel much more comfortable and equipped to publish since working with Jayne."

Alex Blackwood
published by Oxford University Press

"Jayne helped me enormously through the various stages of writing a large review paper, from helping me focus my initial research to structuring the paper, the processes of submission, and working on revisions.

Working with Jayne has been a wonderful experience, and I’m eternally grateful for her mentorship, supervision, and support, helping me with my writing as well as research skills.

I now have the tools and experience to feel confident in writing and submitting academic papers."
