Publishing for scientists is like
“If it is not published, you did not do it”
Scientific publishing is therefore easy to understand for social media savvy kids because it is similar to experiences that don’t count unless the picture of it is on facebook. For scientists, however, it actually makes a lot of sense to publish findings. After all, sharing your new knowledge spurs further discoveries by colleagues around the world.
