This interactive workshop provides an overview of the scientific writing process and an introduction to the publishing process for less-experienced authors. The writing section will cover key components of a scientific manuscript and it will also highlight some of the resources available to authors. The publishing section will describe the publication and the peer-review process, and also address ethical issues in scientific writing. A panel of editors will give an insight into the workings of an editorial office and discuss the most common reasons for rejection of manuscripts. The aim is to make the editorial decision-making process transparent and provide practical information on how to navigate the publication process by avoiding common pitfalls. The workshop will be facilitated by the Journal of the International AIDS Society.
