The principles of sciences differ from discipline to discipline but the essence of all sciences is understanding. Different sciences use the understanding for different purposes. Natural sciences to predict future observations, technical sciences to solve problems, historical sciences to explain the past, economical sciences to steer the economy, political sciences to control the society, and philosophy to draw most general principles.
The key goal is therefore to understand more. How to do it? It is exactly what students learn during their PhD studies.
Scientific publication must contain a new knowledge. As a definition of a novelty the following citation from the instructions for referees of IEEE Transactions on PAMI can be adopted: ``The novelty will usually lie in new results, methods, observations, concepts, or applications, but may also reside in syntheses of or insights into previously reported research.''
Writing publications right is difficult. Read [4,2] to find more about how to write and publish a scientific paper. Regarding publications at CMP, they have to follow CMP publication rules. Please, never forget to acknowledge research grants. Each publication has to be approved by student's supervisor.
There is a chapter available from the Richard M. Reis' book ``Tomorrow's Professor'' entitled ``Your Professional Preparation Strategy'' that is worth reading too
The University of Queensland, Australia, has collected advices for PhD students at their university professionally.
An approach to good supervisory practice is described in .
