Learning Institute Number LI1007 - Scientific Writing for Peer Reviewed Publications for Public Health ProfessionalsSaturday, November 15, 2014
9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
The purpose of this Institute is to help public health practitioners at the state and local-levels turn their work into manuscripts for publication. The course will cover the following sections: why write for publication; what an editor looks for; how to write each section of a manuscript; and tips for submitting to journals. There will be two main presenters: one presenter is the editor-in-chief of Preventing Chronic Disease while the other presenter has served on the AJPH and MCHJ editorial boards, and has edited special issues of Pediatrics and the MCHJ. Both presenters have published at least 100 articles. They will be assisted by a number of other experienced authors or editors who will work with the class on partially-completed manuscripts that they will be asked to bring to class. Further details on this method of instruction are presented below. This course is proposed because a common complaint has been that there is a dearth of manuscripts from state and local-level health departments on their work. Publishing in peer-reviewed journals is one method for communicating the results of health department programs to a wider audience.
