GRIPE 2018 – Pre-Conference Workshop Information

The 2018 Annual GRIPE Winter Meeting will be taking place from January 25-27, 2018. Thursday, January 25 is a pre-conference workshop day, and we would like to highlight one of the sessions for you:

Tips and Tricks for successfully publishing scholarly work in an international journal on Medical Education
Presented by Peter de Jong, Editor-in-Chief of ​Medical Science Educator​, and Julie Hewett

In publishing scholarly work it is important to choose the right strategy in submitting the work to the most appropriate journal. The workshop will give the attendees an overview of several journals for Medical Education and the characteristics of different manuscript types, more insight in the editorial processes of a journal and several concrete strategies to increase the chances of acceptance of their work. The workshop is intended for those with no or little experience in submitting manuscripts to international medical education journals.

At the end of the workshop the participants will have a better understanding of scientific publishing in medical education and the way in how a manuscript should be submitted.
