I am interested in writing a review on a topic that I am very interested in and am very well informed about. I would like to ask how does one go about doing this?
I was told that you have to be invited by a journal to write a review or else you give a talk at a conference and they ask you to write a review. You can't just decide to write one and submit to a journal. If this is true, I am confused as to how one would do that, as at all of the conferences I have attended, presenters usually give an entire story with results and not just update the audience on the literature.
Any ideas or suggestion on this would be greatly appreciated.
