Complimentary course.

Writing a scientific article can be a daunting task. Understanding the process of scientific writing may make this a more comfortable endeavor. This presentation will identify the reasons for writing and the ways in which an author should structure their article. From creating a rational purpose for the article through the various sections, the attendee will become familiar with the process of writing and submitting an article for publication. The review process will be discussed and the attendees will learn the likelihood that their submission would reach publication.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) identify the reasons for writing a scientific article; 2) differentiate among various types of articles; and 3) create a structure that matches that of the journal to which an article is submitted.
