Writing a Professional Journal
Pursuing the nursing profession gave me the chance to learn the about writing professional journals for peer reviews. Before this course, I had no experience about writing professional journals
In the contemporary nursing and medical community, the skills of writing professional journals are imperative, specifically evidence-based practice (EBP) manuscripts. Writing publications is an effective way of transferring information to readers. Professional publications also provide details about quality improvement (Qi) programs, research outcomes, and evidence-based practice (EBP) outcomes (Carter, 2015). Writing publication is an important skill for all medical practitioners who bear the responsibility of increasing and sharing knowledge with others.
The greatest concerns for writing manuscripts include poor report organization and amount of information provided on a particular subject (Marilyn, Katheleen, & Margaret, 2014). Learning to write manuscripts is a continuous process that professionals have to practice often to gain consistency. A well-written manuscript provides important information for readers to evaluateand extract important information to influence their knowledge. An elaborate manuscript outlines the topic of concern, provides background information, and describes the necessity of a particular project or program (Morton, 2015). Peer review publications provide readers with vital information about a subject. A well-written and organized journal is easy to comprehend.
The research study is significant because it provides information about the systematic preparation of manuscripts to report research findings, quality improvement programs, and evidence-based practice outcomes. This framework provides important information about manuscript designs and project implementation (Rodrigues, 2013). The right information from credible sources is an essential aspect of discerning manuscripts’ validity. The study also reveals the most common challenges and recommendations for successful publications. The pet peeves include the lack of conceptual congruency, poor work organization awash with grammar, syntax, and spelling mistakes, and shallow literature review. The most insightful information is the advice for writing successful publications. The Journal of Nursing Education (JNE) reviewers stipulate that authors write authentic topics that resonate with the society (Steefel, 2013). They also advise that authors submit their journals to colleagues for evaluation, inputs, and corrections.
