Healthcare professionals in all settings – clinical practice, academia and management – have exciting ideas and innovations that would be beneficial to share with others. However, many are not familiar with the writing and publishing process and thus sharing through professional literature, a traditional communication channel, can be a daunting task. In this workshop, Dr. Leslie Nicoll will use “Manuscript Success” as a method to demystify the publishing process and provide practical evidence-based strategies for achieving publication goals. Using presentation, audience participation, questions and discussion, participants will gain knowledge and confidence in how to write manuscripts that will be favorably received by editors and reviewers. Identifying and overcoming pitfalls, ethical issues and effective use of resources will also be discussed.

Objectives: At the conclusion of this workshop, the participant will be able to:

1. Identify the five steps in the Manuscript Success process

2. Define “journal due diligence” and describe its importance.

3. Compare and contrast subscription-based, open access, and predatory journals

4. Describe at least three different types of plagiarism that may occur in scholarly writing

5. Identify one ethical issue related to authorship, and 6. Create a realistic timeline for developing a scholarly portfolio.
