Which is the most appropriate journal for my work? What makes a compelling abstract? How does my manuscript's cover letter improve the chances that my paper will be reviewed and accepted. How can I possibly respond to all the reviewers' comments and still keep my manuscript at a reasonable length? And what on earth is Green Open Access?

This interactive webinar is designed to demystify the publishing process. Attendees will learn how best to use academic publications to disseminate their research findings. Session leaders will provide an editors' view from the trenches, offering attendees an inside look at what editors are looking for in a manuscript submission, how manuscripts are typically evaluated, and what happens following acceptance (or rejection...).

The session will be led by the editors of the Journal of Adolescent Health and will include a Q&A session with a panel of experienced editorial board members, reviewers, and authors. Attendees are encouraged to bring specific examples and anecdotes for discussion and consultation.

(This is a non-CME/CE event.)

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the webinar, participants will be able to:
  1. Identify four steps for successful manuscript submission.
  2. Define the global landscape of health science journal publishing and how authors can best navigate through it.
  3. Use recent publishing innovations to disseminate an author's work more effectively.
