Writing the Biomedical Manuscript: The Journal Editor's Perspective

Video Available*SUNetID required

This seminar will examine the essentials of creating the peer-reviewed biomedical manuscript from the point of view of journal editor. We will look at what constitutes a good (and bad) manuscript and how scientists and physicians can significantly improve their manuscript-construction skills. We will utilize a structured, proven approach for writing manuscript sections and aspects of clear writing that often plague inexperienced and even experienced manuscript writers. By the end of this class, researchers will use a new approach to writing that will significantly improve their manuscripts.
