Interested in publishing successfully? Join us for a journey through the mind of Dr. John Eble (MD), editor-in-chief of one of the most prestigious pathology journals – Modern Pathology. Learn key factors in getting published and how to avoid common mistakes.

“In my opinion, the single most important factor for getting published is to inspire confidence in the reviewers and editors,” says Dr. Eble. “Because, when you think about it, you distill all of your detailed research into a manuscript and a lot of that research is not directly included. Reviewers and editors have to rely on faith. If you don’t inspire confidence then they are not going to take things on faith.”
