  1. Discuss methods to streamline the submission-to-publication process.
  2. Compare and contrast benefits, barriers, and objections to making subsequent submissions easier for authors.
  3. Analyze the concept of a uniform style for nursing journals.

Content. Publishers have developed goals to get cutting-edge information out to the public in a timelier and more efficient manner. This session is designed to offer participants a chance to learn from each other, explore emerging issues, and guide conversations in directions that lead to new and applicable knowledge.

During the session, participants will explore:
1. Backlogs

  • What is your article backlog? Is it a problem?
  • How are you being asked to deal with it?
  • What works and what doesn’t work?

2. Rejections

  • When you reject a paper do you encourage authors to re-submit to another journal? When, why, and how?
  • Does your journal have an automatic referral system? Would you like one?

3. What is your journal doing about “your paper your way” and other efforts to make subsequent submissions easier for authors? What do you think when you get a paper that has obviously been submitted to another journal?

4. Should all nursing journals use the same style to make subsequent submission easier? If not, how will you deal with subsequent submissions that do not conform to your journal style?

Methods. The session will encourage participant interactions through individual processing and sharing exercises, small and large group discussions, and participant direction.

Powerpoint: INANE 2014-2 Lucy and Kristie

Note from the Planning Committee: Just as we were putting the finishing touches on the final conference program, we learned that Pat Patsdaughter died in Florida, January 26, 2014. Pat was a true friend of INANE and was thrilled to be participating in this year’s conference as a presenter. In honor of her memory, and in consultation with her two co-presenters, we have decided to leave her name on the program. Even though she won’t be with us in her physical body, we know that she will be with us in spirit. Her legacy will live on through INANE in ways both great and small.
