I carried out my PIPS placement at The Company of Biologists – a decision largely driven by my interest in gaining insight into the publishing process in preparation for submitting my own articles, and also to find out more about publishing as an alternative career path after my PhD.

“This internship was a great introduction to the Publishing world. I worked in a nice and stimulating environment, as part of a team, and was supervised by two mentors who helped me to complete my projects and answered all my questions. I think that was a very good experience for me, as a PhD student, working in a completely different but still science-related field.”
The Company of Biologists Workshop ‘Thinking beyond the dish: taking in vitro neural differentiation to the next level’ took place at Wiston House, West Sussex, UK, from 4 to 7 February 2018.
In the autumn of 2017 I undertook my PIPs internship at The Company of Biologists, the publisher behind five major journals including Development – the journal which hosts the community site the Node. I was keen to experience the publishing side of science, and see what a non-academic career in science could be like.

George Parker Bidder III, the founder of The Company of Biologists, was an eminent marine biologist. While working at the Marine Biological Association in Plymouth in the early 1900s, Bidder released over 1,000 bottles into the North Sea as part of his investigations into water movements (in comparison with the direction of plaice migration). The majority were trawled up by fishermen, but some of the bottles were presumed to be lost for ever.
