Recorded On: 03/31/2023

Back to Package

Publishing your work in a peer-reviewed journal helps disseminate important findings and ideas to a wide audience. Yet publishing has become increasingly difficult as most journals receive large numbers of submissions and have low acceptance rates. What can you do to successfully navigate the publication process?

In this session, we will introduce participants to Academic Medicine, its focus areas, and editorial process. We will share tips for successful publication and describe available resources for authors. There will be time for Q&A with one or more members of the Academic Medicine editorial team.

After participating in this session, participants should be able to:    

  • Describe the focus areas of Academic Medicine
  • Describe the peer-review process and common reasons for rejection
  • Identify available resources for authors and reviewers
