Public Health Reports Webinar
How to Get Published in Peer Reviewed Journals

May 18,  2017 |  1:30 - 2:30 p.m. ET

Public Health Reports presents a one-hour webinar to help public health practitioners at the state and local-levels turn their work into manuscripts for publication. Recognizing the importance of having local health agencies and early career professionals be able to write and publish about their experiences in the front lines of public health, this informative webinar will discuss general strategy of what is needed to begin thinking about an article for the peer-reviewed literature, how to structure it, how to plan it, how to execute it, and how to position it so that it will be attractive to journals and peer reviewers.
