How to Write for an Academic Journal

Preparing an abstract either to have your article accepted for publication or for presentation as a paper or poster for a scientific conference can feel daunting. However there is great benefit from having your work accepted.  It is a major feather in your cap and more importantly it means your work can be accessed by others who will benefit from its content.

If you are interested in finding out how to write an abstract for conference and for publication then please open the presentation by Dr Jon Otter which gives details of the best way to have your work accepted either as a conference presentation/poster or for publication in the Journal of Infection Prevention.
