Writing and publishing support services in hospitals: a help for authors' success

  1. 1. WRITING AND PUBLISHING SUPPORT SERVICES IN HOSPITALS A HELP FOR AUTHORS’ SUCCESS
  2. 2. WRITING AND PUBLISHING SUPPORT SERVICES IN HOSPITALS: A HELP FOR AUTHORS’ SUCCESS Introduction: Science writing or communication is key for researchers and scholars to advance their career and science knowledge, approach theoretical and practical questions, face international competition, and guarantee funding for studies because of the assessment criteria established by funding agencies. The ability to write well requires education and practice. In Brazil and in many other countries, few actions exist to educate or support authors in their writing process, especially novice authors who did not receive any training on writing and need to write a conference abstract, a full paper, and a dissertation without previous training/knowledge how to do so.
  3. 3. Introduction: Studies have reported that authors who receive any kind of support for writing are more likely to publish their findings successfully. Non-Anglophone authors have extra barriers to publish because English, the international language of science, rhetoric and structure are different from their native language, and also due to the limited English skills that a number of authors have and for them writing in English is an arduous task.

  4. 4. WRITING AND PUBLISHING SUPPORT SERVICES IN HOSPITALS: A HELP FOR AUTHORS’ SUCCESS Objective: To identify services in Brazilian public and private hospitals that help authors to write and publish their scientific findings in English and Portuguese.
  5. 5. WRITING AND PUBLISHING SUPPORT SERVICES IN HOSPITALS: A HELP FOR AUTHORS’ SUCCESS José Belém de Oliveira Neto – Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein – jose.bneto@einstein.br Methodology: The homepage of 8 Brazilian public and private hospitals was searched to identify writing and publishing services offered to authors. The following keywords in Brazilian Portuguese were used publicação acadêmica, escrita acadêmica and divulgação cientifica (scientific publication, academic writing, science diffusion).
  6. 6. WRITING AND PUBLISHING SUPPORT SERVICES IN HOSPITALS: A HELP FOR AUTHORS’ SUCCESS Results and discussion: The result showed that 50% of hospitals did not provide any service to help authors to write and/or publish. Although some specific actions such as workshops are promoted from time to time by some institutions, a permanent writing and publish to support authors can help them during the publishing process. Clearly, there is a need that more institutions adopt and promote services to support authors who are willing to write and publish their scientific findings. Such services can be offered and administrated by libraries or communication services within hospitals.
  7. 7. WRITING AND PUBLISHING SUPPORT SERVICES IN HOSPITALS: A HELP FOR AUTHORS’ SUCCESS Conclusion: Publishing and writing services require further attention and its adoption can bring positive results both for authors who need to publish and for hospitals that need to increase their scientific output.
