Germinate Science Consulting (GSC) is an experimental project for former Nature microbiology editor Andrew Jermy, PhD.
GSC has a few simple aims:
1) To help researchers ensure that their hard work is communicated in a clear, accurate and complete manner in a draft manuscript.
2) To demystify the publishing process by providing detailed insight into the editorial assessment of a study, provide advice on how to improve a draft manuscript and on appropriate journals that could be considered for submission.
3) Through delivery of seminars and workshops, offer training for early (and later) career researchers in a range of topics relating to generating and handling data, communicating and publishing science, and developing a career.
GSC is currently focussed on serving the microbiology field, but will consider project work and training in other fields also.
