What format is most appropriate for my message

Most of us are justifiably interested in recognition for our work. The way in which a study is presented and published can determine the nature of that recognition, and in fact whether we receive any recognition at all.

For a scientist to receive professional credit for being the first to discover something new, it is not sufficient just to be the first to perceive or detect it - he or she must be the first to publish the information "validly," i.e., in a very specific way. This distinction is most important in (but not restricted to) the taxonomic sciences, in which the naming of new organisms hinges on a strict system of priority of valid publication.
