Abstract

Getting academic research published can be a daunting undertaking at first, and before the advent of academic junior doctor posts, was a hidden art for most. Publications remain an important milestone in academic progress in many disciplines and in some medical specialties are a prerequisite for selection to higher training grades. This article provides a brief overview of some of the issues facing those wishing to publish and how they may be overcome.
