Do you wonder how you can publish papers as you juggle research implementation, teaching or clinical practice, proposal writing, administrative duties, and a personal life all at once?
Have you been awarded pilot funds but not yet begun planning for papers?
Do you have data that are analyzed but not yet in manuscript form?
Are you relatively unfamiliar with the publication process?

Publishing in the peer-reviewed literature is critical: not only to disseminate findings from your research but to facilitate successful grant reviews as well as academic advance in the future. Yet it is not always easy: navigating the publishing process can be challenging especially for those new to the process or those with multiple demands on their time. In this Writing and Publishing on HIV/AIDs panel you will hear from experts on publishing in HIV/AIDS related literature and learn publication strategies from the field for successful publication of your research findings. Graduate students, junior, and senior faculty from all area institutions are invited to attend.  This panel is open to all.  Registration requested, but not required.

For hands-on help with your specific paper questions you can attend one of the mentor-led, discipline-specific workshops.   Discuss your own challenges and roadblocks with specialized mentors in publishing in the HIV/AIDS field.  Two sessions are available and each session will address the unique needs to attendees.  RSVP required by Sunday, November 30.

This panel and workshops are brought to you by the District of Columbia Developmental Center for AIDS Research (DC D-CFAR), an NIH-funded program (P30AI087714), and the GW Libraries, as part of the ongoing series Strategies for Interdisciplinary Publishing Success (SIPS). SIPS brings together authors, editors, researchers, and students to share practical wisdom about the publishing process, with a focus on the challenges of publishing interdisciplinary work.
