The West Virginia Clinical and Translational Science Institute (WVCTSI) is launching a new Editorial Services for Publication program to support the professional development of WVCTSI members and assist with submission of their clinical and translational research findings for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
The process of preparing a polished journal or publication manuscript can be daunting. Editorial support is key for a successful submission and to ensure that research findings are disseminated in the scientific literature. The newly launched set of services serves as a one-stop-shop where investigators may request assistance with publication consultation, proof reading, copyediting and/or substantive editing of the manuscript.
“WVCTSI has always supported scientific investigators with the tools and resources to advance health through research and discovery,” said James Bardes, M.D., assistant professor of Trauma, Acute Care Surgery and Surgical Critical Care with the WVU School of Medicine. “I am excited about the newly offered editorial support which strengthens manuscripts and grant applications submitted by WVCTSI members. The comprehensive assistance I received through the editorial services for publications has been instrumental in multiple aspects of my publication submission process.”
The editorial services add to WVCTSI’s wide variety of professional development services including academic degrees, interactive writing groups and professional development groups/opportunities geared towards scientists at all stages of their research careers.
