Join a Writing Group

Writing groups are a team of research investigators who support a lead author in the development of their manuscript by:

  • Advising on the data analysis plan
  • Offering subject expertise
  • Participating in conference calls
  • Writing, revising, and editing the final draft
  • Recommending journals for submission

Paper proposals recently approved by the P&P Committee become open to accept nominations for writing group members. Since active participation is expected of every writing group member, members should be conscious of the number of groups they choose to participate in and keep their number of nominations to a reasonable limit.

If a title among the list of open writing groups interests you, please feel free to email the P&P Committee to obtain more information or provide you with a contact to the lead author.
