AUTHORSHIP & GUIDELINES
Please consult your favorite professional journal and search for “Author Guidelines.” Attach the guidelines to the Discussion Forum along with your discussion content If you receive a hard-copy in the mail, you will have to scan the Author Guidelines, save it to your computer, and thereby be able to attach the Word.doc to your Discussion Forum posting. The Discussion Forum itself will include your comments on the following:
1. Why would a practicing nurse want to publish?
2. Comment on the guidelines you’ve attached to your discussion. Point out those things that
are familiar and those things that are not.
3. If you were writing an article today, do you currently have enough information to successfully follow the guidelines?
4. If you do not have enough information to successfully follow the guidelines, where might you locate the information?
