4387.0 How to Get Published in the Field of Population, Reproductive, and Sexual Health

Tuesday, November 10, 2009: 4:30 PM
Panel Discussion
In this panel, editors from top-peer reviewed journals from the sexual and reproductive health field will discuss what authors should do – and NOT do – to enhance their chances of getting published. Editors from American Journal of Public Health, Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health, and Studies in Family Planning will describe their publications’ areas of interest and manuscript selection process. They will also provide advice about what authors should keep in mind during the submission process, as well as the types of manuscripts they wish they saw more (and less) often.
