Anatomy of Writing for Publication for Nurses will be one of your trusted resources that will launch you on your journey to writing for publication. It is an A to Z guide that walks you through key topics, such as how to select and refine a topic, organize an article, and write for different audiences, including consumers.
This valuable resource can help novice writers to work in a group on singular or collaborative papers. Or you can find a mentor who is an experienced writer to give you feedback on the writing exercises that are included in the book, and guide you on your own manuscript for publication.
This book is divided into two parts. In Part I: A Primer on Writing and Publishing, you will learn the basics of publishing from books to journals, from print to online, and from generating a great idea to marketing your work. This section is packed with information on how to bolster your chances for having your manuscript accepted for publication. Topics include how to query a journal; writing and submitting the manuscript; legal and ethical issues; and effective use of tables, figures, graphs, illustrations, and photos. If English is your second language, don’t miss the chapter for global authors.
Part II: Writing for Different Styles and Platforms is where you can apply what you learned in Part I. Each chapter takes you through writing a particular type of paper or article, including clinical articles, scholarly journals, abstracts, books, online, personal narratives, continuing education, and writing for consumers.
