By Hannah Foreman Posted on 12 August 2015
This is one of various "Quick Guides" in the Elsevier Publishing Campus resources section. They are free to download and are also available in Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and Brazilian Portuguese.
The Elsevier Publishing Campus is a free online platform that provides lectures, interactive training and professional advice on a wide range of topics, from the fundamentals of publishing to broader issues like gender in research and open science. Researchers can register for training courses, learn from leaders in research and publishing, and take part in topical debates. For every module or seminar completed, researchers are recognized for their efforts with an awarded certificate for their efforts.
