Many journals let you recommend reviewers for your manuscript when you submit it for publication. Learn how to use this opportunity to get expert feedback on your work while making a journal editor’s job a bit easier (that’s a good thing).

There are several websites called preprint servers that allow researchers to post an unpublished manuscript so that everyone in the scientific community can read their findings.
