PUBLICATIONS & MENTORING WORK SHOP
It is often the case that one struggles to write and publish without a mentor to support and guide you. The peer reviewers of The Radiographer are going to be available during the ASMMIRT meeting to guide and support you with this process.
By attending the Publications and Mentoring Workshop, it is expected that you will learn
• the different types of papers that can be accepted for publication and their requirements such as writing research papers, commentary papers and case reports.
• the value of reporting guidelines and how you can use these guidelines to ensure that all of the essential items are included in your manuscript.
• the peer review process – what to submit and how to respond to the editor and reviewers.
• the benefits of having a mentor for guidance and support.
