I've recently produced a paper, which took much blood sweat and tears, with a great team of co-authors, on some of the top questions we need to have answered in order to progress marine conservation. The project was nearly three years in the making and i lost count of how many drafts were produced. The paper is now finally online (open access) via: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/cobi.12303/abstract
We had a couple of false starts - one of the first (conservation) journals we submitted the manuscript to said that it would be "of limited interest to our readers". It eventually got accepted in the top conservation biology journal and within two weeks was the second most talked about paper on social media EVER for the journal. So much for being of limited interest ... pah !
Friend, co-author and fellow blogger Megan Draheim did a nice blog entry on the article, so rather than repeat this, go visit her blog
Conservation magazine also wrote an article in the paper, that you can find here.
