In this article, we consider the practice of publishing in academic journals. We describe the ’world of academic publishing’ as it appears today, discuss contemporary rankings of academic journals and articles, specify key elements related to the academic publication process, and finally pinpoint the crucial role of reviewers within the system. We think there is an urgent need for this kind of summarizing text as early career scholars in Finland (as elsewhere) are increasingly encouraged to submit their work to international journals, often without the necessary information on how the system – the academic publishing machine – works. Publishing is a tricky and unpredictable business. There are conventions involved, and we hope that the advice and reflections contained in this article will help to smooth the route to getting ideas in print.
