Facilitated by Ziv J. Haskal, MD, FSIR, FAHA FACR, FCIRSE, Professor of Radiology and Medical Imaging; Editor in Chief of the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology and Gastrointestinal Intervention

Description/Learning Outcomes: In advance of each session, participants will be invited to submit a draft manuscript for discussion that will be blinded and then shared with the group. Participants will mark up the draft manuscripts before each session as if they are a scientific reviewer and editor and come prepared to discuss the paper’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, etc. This is a great opportunity for participants to have their manuscript “pre-reviewed” and learn to enhance the value of their work before submission. The group will review 2-3 papers during each session. Please note: not having a draft manuscript to submit does not preclude participation. Through facilitated discussion led by Dr. Haskal, participants will learn what distinguishes a good manuscript from a bad manuscript and get tips for strengthening both the content and structure of their own work. The papers are considered private and are not to be distributed to others. After each seminar, we expect all participants to delete the files and destroy the printed copies. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to discuss basic and advanced aspects of preparing a scientific manuscript for submission to a peer reviewed journal; review elements of publishing misconduct and methods to avoid; and present guides and tips for success during manuscript peer review and manuscript revision.

“Great advice given. I liked how thorough the feedback was. I definitely benefited from reviewing my drafts and those of others. By far one of the most helpful workshops I attended.”

“My paper was discussed so receiving explicit notes on what to improve was particularly helpful for me. I liked the mix of specific analysis of papers intercalated with breakouts into advice on more general topics.”

“I learned a lot from Dr. Haskal going over each section and pointing out areas for improvement and how things should be worded or not.
“Great facilitation by Dr. Haskal, really appreciate his candor and expertise. Felt it was extremely constructive but not hostile in any way. Making me feel more brave to work on my manuscript ideas and submit something.”

“Real-world examples were extremely helpful. Dr. Haskal’s years of experience are invaluable to this process.”
