Advancing Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights

Upcoming Events for Researchers

Are you preparing a manuscript for publication but unsure of what the editors of peer-reviewed journals are looking for? Does the peer review-process confuse, frustrate or intimidate you? Are you uncertain how to present important findings from your work in ways most likely to have an impact? Sessions being planned for this year's meetings of the International Union for the Scientifi c Study of Population (IUSSP) and the American Public Health Association (APHA) will give attendees the opportunity to hear editors of several peer-reviewed journals describe their manuscript selection process and to learn from researchers and communications experts how to effectively present findings to various audiences. Panelists will include members of the editorial staff of Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health and our sister publication, International Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health (formerly International Family Planning Perspectives).
