Education in the world of science has one purpose: to bring scientists to the level of understanding in their field of specialization that would allow for the successful dissemination of research in an internationally reputable journal. However, success does not depend exclusively on the volumes of literature that are studied, but most importantly, on the collaborative relationships that are established and on the concerted efforts made, within an ethical framework, that would be able to lead to the successful publication of those results in a peer-reviewed journal. International writing collaboration – the focus of this short discussion – is one solution to success in scientific publishing by introducing new measures of overcoming ethical hurdles, and with constant re-evaluation and re-adjustment of that collaboration, global competitiveness is possible, thus advancing science.
Keywords: Collaboration, education, partnerships in science writing, publishing ethics.
