On-Demand Training: Introduction to Practice-Based Publishing

Practice-based research is at the core of the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice (JPHMP) mission. Practitioners are doing good and important work, inside and outside COVID-19 response, and are doing work that the broader community might benefit from learning more about. State and local public health practitioners are a primary readership of the journal and, increasingly, are also a significant portion of the author base. This first session in the four-part series will cover for the basics of publishing.
