Well, being a scientist is all about publishing your work so that other scientists know what has been done and also gives scientists new directions of research. This is how we move forward as a science society and dont have to ‘reinvent the wheel’ per se. I have had a bunch of journal articles published in science journals over the last year. However, these are ususally more technical and are written for a scientist demographic. Other than that I write articles in our intitutes monthly newsletter-lol, this is hardly anything compared to an article in New Scientist!
