Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about publishing a proof argument or case study in a genealogical journal. We talk about advice Nicole received from authors of DNA case studies published in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly (NGSQ). They shared some of the benefits and challenges of submitting a DNA case study for publication including peer review, contacting people for permission, and the length constraints of a journal article.
