Writing for journals

8 questions to ask before you start writing an article

1. Should I be writing this article anyway?


2. How will I find the time?


3. Should I start writing what I can as soon as I can?


4. Who are my co-authors?


5. How will I know when I have done enough research?


6. Should I start with the title?


7. Should I decide now which journal I am submitting to?


8. How should I define success?


These questions formed the basis of an article published in the British Journal of Hospital Medicine in June 2017. A link to this article is below.
