Clinical Guide: Writing for Publication

I’ve had a few questions over the summer from people wanting more information about how to publish.

Let me know if there are others you’ve come across that you find particularly helpful.

Ten Lessons on Writing for Publication (Oncology Nursing Society)

Writing for Publication: A Guide for New Authors (International Journal for Quality in Health Care)

Writing for Publication (Wiley-Blackwell)

Writing for Publication: A Practical Guide (Nursing Standard)

Writing in the Health Sciences: A Comprehensive Guide (University of Toronto)

And of course, if you’re writing for a nursing journal you’ll need:

APA Style (American Psychological Association)

If you’re writing for a medical journal you can get free assistance with the AMA Manual of Style (access requires a subscription), via AMA Style Inside.
