Sharing Your Scholarship With the World: The Art of Writing and Getting Published

This webinar is for the Group on Faculty Affairs (GFA) and Group on Diversity and Inclusion (GDI) Representatives.

Publishing your work in a peer-reviewed journal helps disseminate important findings and ideas to a wide audience. Publications are key criteria for promotion and tenure decisions. Yet most journals receive large numbers of submissions and have low acceptance rates. What can you do to successfully navigate the publication process? In this webinar, staff from Academic Medicine and MedEdPORTAl will discuss what makes a good publication, the steps of the publication process, what editors look for in submissions, common reasons for rejection, and resources available to support authors as they develop, submit, and revise their work.
