O-15 - Getting Your Work Published

Tuesday, May 1
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: E353C

This will be the sixth consecutive telemedicine publishing workshop. It will provide an approach to scholarly publication in the field of telemedicine and is intended to help new or burgeoning authors to get started in publishing their work. The agenda covers some key elements of successful publication including determining the right topic and appropriate journal, responding to editors' instructions, and dealing with statistics. Attendees will learn from prominent researchers and leaders in the telemedicine field and will be encouraged to identify one or more potential mentors or senior authors to help with their publishing projects.

Last year's workshop included between 40-50 attendees and comments from past workshops have included: "Fantastic session, very helpful to those new to writing. I have been to similar presentations before at other conferences, this one was best" and "Wow! Huge talent with great, great input on this subject! The offer for mentoring is an awesome opportunity as well." We expect the 2018 workshop to be even better!
