A prerequisite for successfully defending a Ph.D. thesis is the writing of scientific articles. The articles present the results of the research conducted, may demonstrate experimental or analytical conclusions on the topic of the dissertation. In a scientific article must present its own conclusions and interim or final results, which the researcher presents on its scientific research. Such an article should contain its own developments, recommendations and conclusions.
Although there are more lenient requirements for those seeking a Ph.D. degree, publications must be submitted in at least three scholarly journals:
It is worth noting that there are many opinions on the subject of "is the publication of this number of articles enough or should it be increased? One thing that is clear is that all papers must be of high quality, regardless of their number.
It should also be said that some studies contain information of state secrets. In spite of this, such articles are published, but taking into account the special norms of the law. In other words, every future PhD candidate must publish three articles, but if they contain state secrets, they are published in publications that are specially designed for this purpose.
As presented earlier, a future Ph.D. candidate must publish at least one scientific article in a foreign scientific publication. In addition, instead of publishing an article in a foreign publication, it is possible to place it in a scientific journal that is included in the international scientometric databases (WoS or Scopus).
If a young scholar chooses to publish abroad, however, he or she needs to decide on a publication, which means the question of where best to publish it arises. And since graduate students are still yesterday's students, who often have no experience in publishing in foreign publications, they are at a loss. In addition, they may not know a foreign language at such a high level, where you need to use some scientific terms accurately, build unspoken sentences correctly, etc. This is why at first they most often turn to professional translators or specialists who prepare scientific articles for printing in foreign scientific journals.
So, a future scientist can publish his work in Poland, Russia, Belarus, the Czech Republic, i.e. in the countries of the near abroad. This is especially easy to do if the university cooperates with scientific institutions from the countries represented. For example, there are internships between the domestic university where a graduate student studies and the university of the near abroad, they exchange students to exchange experience, hold regular conferences, etc. So, often supervisors help their young scientists and offer them to participate in the conference, in this case you can be guaranteed to publish your work. Another advantage of this way to publish your paper in a foreign publication is to participate in the conference remotely. In this way, the work will be done and you won't have to travel anywhere.
A more complicated path is the publication of an academic article in Ukrainian diaspora publications. Thus, natives of Ukraine living in Canada have organized many sociocultural and research organizations. So a future scholar who works in the humanities can try this option to publish his scientific work.
Publish the text of a scientific article in a publication that is included in the WoS or Scopus databases. This option is difficult, but it is the most prestigious, especially if the PhD candidate plans to advance in his or her career. Before choosing a particular publication, it is necessary to check whether the chosen journal is indexed in the WoS or Scopus database.
It may, of course, happen that the first journal will reject the publication of a scientific article. Usually, in response, the future candidate receives remarks, on which edits can be made and the paper can be sent to another journal. It is important to remember that the same article cannot be sent to multiple journals at the same time.
