Publishing is an important part of sharing the outcomes of research, but the publication process and requirements may sometimes feel like a closed book. HSG and BioMed Central, publisher of BMC Health Services Research which is affiliated with HSG, are pleased to announce that after a successful webinar series last year, we will again partner to deliver a series of webinars to open up the peer review and publication processes.
Aimed at researchers at a variety of career stages, the series will cover: how to prepare an article and choose the right journal, what happens during peer review, research and publication ethics and how to be a peer reviewer.
Webinar 1: Preparing your article and submitting to a journal
March 9 2018,12:00 PM- 13:30 PM GMT
Preparing your research article starts long before you begin writing. Aimed at early career researchers, but useful for those with experience of publication, this webinar will take you through the key points to consider when preparing your article and provide advice on how to approach selecting the right journal for your work.
Presented by: Maria Zalm, Editor for BMC Health Services Research and Liz Hoffman, Journal Development Manager for the health services research journals at BioMed Central.

Have you ever wondered what the journal editor’s viewpoint is on your article, or what happens once you send your manuscript to a journal? This webinar will provide an overview of the peer review process with advice for authors on how to engage constructively with comments from editors and reviewers, and what to do when you disagree.
