Writing and publishing your research findings

J Investig Med. 2009 Jun;57(5):634-9. doi: 10.2310/JIM.0b013e3181a39164.


Writing clearly is critical to the success of your scientific career. Unfortunately, this skill is not taught in medical school or postgraduate training. This article summarizes our approach to the writing and publication of your research. Here we focus on empirical or experimental reports of translational and clinically oriented research. We review the process of choosing what to write, how to write it clearly, and how to navigate the process of submission and publication.
