This pre-conference is a repeat of our successful publishing workshops at the ANAC conferences.  It is designed to help authors (new and experienced) develop manuscripts in ways that will increase the likelihood of publication, especially in the Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care.  It will cover the basics of manuscript preparation, the ethics of publishing, and the manuscript submission and review process.

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

  • Describe formatting and content guidelines for submission of a manuscript to an academic journal.
  • Summarize publishing ethical standards using at least one specific example.
  • List the steps necessary to submit an article through Elsevier Electronic Submission system.
  • Define the peer review process, including the roles of the author and the editors.
