Mainly about writing for publication in nursing and health covering writing methods, publishing standards, publication ethics and recent developments in the academic publishing industry.

This podcast covers the often mistaken view that it is wrong to use first person writing in academic work.

How much self citation is too much, should you cite the journal to which you are submitting and should editors ask you to cite their journal?

This myth is about the view that is sometimes perpetrated - with no foundation - that journals do not publish reviews. On the contrary, we like them

I often hear that you cannot publish from a masters dissertation, that you can only publish three papers from your PhD and that you cannot publish from either if they are deposited online by your university. All wrong and I explain why.

This podcast tackles the myth that you are only alloweed to submit a manuscript twice after which time you must give up on it; there is no truth in this, I have no idea how it arose and it is simpy not true.

Here I explore the myth - often perpetrated by fellow editors and picked up by prospective non-English speaking authors - that they must first learn to write in English. Frankly, it doesn't matter and if asked by people if I think it's better to write in English or to write in a native language and have it translated my response is 'I don't know; and I don't care - just write'.
