Publishing Biomedical Research and Reviews

Publishing Biomedical Research and Reviews: Guidelines and Advice for Authors guides authors through the entire publication process, giving them the tools they need to improve their chances of being accepted for publication.

Author C. Lindsay DeVane, Pharm.D., FCCP, FACNP, editor-in-chief of Pharmacotherapy, an official journal of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy, explains each step of the journey, from having a successful submission to having research results, clinical observations, or therapeutic reviews published in the biomedical literature.  Major topics include preparing a scientific manuscript, submitting it for publication, interacting with editors and reviewers, navigating ethical issues, and following up after publication with promotional activities.

Newly trained clinicians, translational researchers, and research scientists will all benefit from this comprehensive book. Because the same principles apply throughout many biomedical disciplines, this book will appeal to pharmacy, medical, nursing, and allied health professionals.
