The Top 14 Resources for Researchers [from AJE]

Out of hundreds of resources for researchers, we have compiled our top 14 articles. Keep reading to find out which ones made the list!

Our goal at AJE is to help researchers, scientists, and scholars communicate their findings. One of the ways that we do that is by offering services, such as language editing, translation, figure formatting, and more. Another way that we do that is by providing free information about writing, publishing, and sharing research. Over the years, we have created videos, writing templates, data reports, infographics, and articles. We have offered webinars and have delivered in-person seminars. We have done this because we want to support researchers throughout the publication process.

From our hundreds of resources, we have chosen to highlight the top 14 as part of our 15 Days of AJE. We hope that you find the information in the resources below helpful as you write and publish your research!
