This presentation will provide data on the importance of evidence and scientific publishing for the acceptability of diagnosis and treatment of disease conditions. It will outline how important high-quality scientific publishing is for the acceptability of the expertise of a medical speciality for patients and other providers.
  • all scholarly publishing metrics will be presented for better understanding/quantifying ‘scholarly values’
  • the roles of the various parties and what this means for how study results are communicated to researchers and clinicians. Publishing the results of scientific research involves many stakeholders, including publishers, editors, reviewers, journals, scientific societies, authors and readers. Relations between stakeholders are complex and subject to permanent change.
  • selecting an appropriate journal for publication is of pivotal importance. This workshop segment will discuss the intricacies of “Journals: how they work and how to choose them.” It will include an exploration of the diverse landscape of scholarly journals, spanning from open-access to subscription-based publications and insights into the rigorous peer-review process. We will then navigate the process of selecting the right journal for publication. Participants will learn the importance of selecting a target journal before writing and understand the value of online journal selection tools.
  • reporting guidelines provide a structured framework for authors to report their research in a clear and consistent manner. This makes it easier for reviewers and readers to understand and evaluate the research and to identify potential biases or limitations. Participants will learn the importance of selecting a suitable guideline when they plan their studies.
