    Getting Published...You Can Do It! Tips and Secrets for Manuscript Writing and the Editorial Process from The Journal of Pediatrics

    Workshop Leader: William Balistreri, MD – CCHMC

    Workshop Speaker: Sarah S. Long, MD – Drexel U College of Medicine

    Workshop Speaker: Paul Graham Fisher, MD – Stanford University

    Workshop Speaker: Denise Goodman, MD, MS – Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

    Editor-in-Chief William F. Balistreri, MD, and Associate Editors Sarah S. Long, MD, Denise M. Goodman, MD, MS, and Paul G. Fisher, MD, MHS, from The Journal of Pediatrics will demystify the submission, review, editorial, and publication process to increase your potential for publication in any journal. In this learner-centered workshop, the facilitators will discuss the preparation of scientific manuscripts, including determining authorship, describing reporting guidelines, deciding which data sufficiently justify publication, and choosing the optimal journal based on factors such as audience, focus, and impact. Other topics will include journal author guidelines; clinical trial registration; the meaning of open access and predatory journals; and an overview of the peer-review process, from selection of reviewers to responding to reviewer comments.

    In this highly interactive session, attendees will participate actively in multiple small group exercises: to target the “right” journal for a manuscript, revise an abstract and optimize figures and tables, condense manuscript text, suggest reviewers, anticipate outcomes of the review process, respond to an invitation to revise a submission, and make a plan if your manuscript is rejected. Attendees are expected to participate actively both individually and in small groups, and even sometimes play a “flipped role” as the editor or reviewer. Learners can expect to gain practical strategies and the resources to navigate successfully the entire editorial process, from manuscript writing through final publication and article promotion.
