Five tips for healthcare professionals

Five tips for healthcare professionals

Getting your research published in a major medical journal can prove almost as challenging as the research project itself! Here are five tips for healthcare professionals that may help improve manuscript preparation.

1) Engage the co-authors: It is crucial to fully involve the co-authors right from the start in order to address any “tricky” issue early on and reach a consensus regarding timelines, journal selection, etc.

2) Draft a publication outline: It may help prepare a rough outline of the manuscript and have it approved by all of the authors before writing the full text.

3) Cast a sharp eye on abstract, tables, and figures: For many papers, the reviewers simply look at the abstract, tables, and figures, without reading the rest of the manuscript. So, these items have to be absolutely perfect!

4) Strictly follow the journal’s instructions: If you don’t follow them, you’ll likely miss the opportunity to see your research published.

5) Have a thick skin: The publication process is far from easy, and rejection is common. You may have to submit your manuscript to several journals, and have your paper undergo multiple review processes prior to its final publication.
