ASCP Insights: Writing, Reviewing, and Publishing Scientific Articles
Part 1: Publishing in JCP
Marlene Freeman, MD, Editor in Chief of The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, introduces the journal and describes the virtue of being a “good citizen” in your submissions and correspondence, as well as the importance of building relationships by becoming a peer reviewer and eventually an active member of the Editorial Board.
Part 2: Demystifying the Manuscript Submission Process
Leslie L. Citrome, MD, MPH, editor of the ASCP Corner, describes how to write and submit a manuscript in such a way as to remove fear from the process and increase the chance of acceptance. These insights are especially valuable for early career psychiatrists.
Part 3: Applying a Diagnostic Approach to Peer Review
Joseph Goldberg, MD, editor for JCP’s Early Career Psychiatrists section, explains how reviewing a manuscript is akin to adopting the mindset of an emergency department physician and applies the diagnostic process to each aspect of the manuscript. He provides examples for becoming a critical reader, further describing what constitutes a critical review and instructing how to provide helpful criticism to the author and the editor.
