Many registered dietitian nutritionists would like to advance their careers by becoming a published author in a specialized field, but are hindered by their lack of understanding of the peer review process. In this introductory webinar, Janice Goldschmidt, incoming BHN Director of Communications, will explain the basics of the peer review process and how to produce a publishable manuscript. Participants will also learn how to identify the most appropriate journal for their potential work, and understand the role of peer reviewers and how to pursue such a role.
