Emphasising the need for publishing research papers, Prof. Baranyiova noted that science was not an individual experience, rather it was supposed to be a shared knowledge, and hence, science without communication was a waste.

She highlighted factors to consider in order to write a good science paper, as thinking what no one has thought of, giving an answer that matters, adequate communication, logical thinking, adopting an appropriate writing style, and keeping a reliable archive, among several other things.
