Reviews

'The evolution of digital publishing has revolutionized the scientific publishing landscape, which made a new revised edition necessary (the previous one is from 2011). New items are, for example, the ORCID (that is a unique digital identifier distinguishing an author from any other researcher), the archiving of your (published) paper, warnings against predatory journals, digital poster presentations. There is also a new chapter on editing your own work before publishing ... The intended readership is obviously the community of students who did not publish before, so the whole process is explained including the selection of a journal, submitting your paper, the refereeing, and how to react to it, and finally the post-refereeing stage of proofreading and publishing. ... Also how to write a book review, give an interview, or write a book proposal. And for the really ambitious, how to become a science communicator.' Adhemar Bultheel, European Mathematical Society
