Writing for Supportive Care in Cancer

Date and time to be announced

The objectives of this workshop are to facilitate participants’ understanding of the requirements for preparing and submitting manuscripts for publication consideration to MASCC’s journal, Supportive Care in Cancer.  The presenters will describe key issues and lessons learned from three perspectives: editor, author, and that of the peer reviewer.

The objectives of the workshop include: Understanding the journal’s requirements, submission process and positioning your paper properly, preparing the manuscript, elements of successful writing, reviewing for the journal and assessing the manuscript, and responding effectively to decisions and recommendations. This workshop will be particularly useful for people who are less familiar with the journal, Supportive Care in Cancer, and/or who have limited experience with writing articles for peer-reviewed journals.
