5 Key considerations to help get your work published

Nova Scotia Health is a large organization with a diverse range of professionals working together around the clock to deliver health care to Nova Scotians.

Some of the projects we take on to support improvement in health care delivery involve trying new ways of doing things in terms of workflow and triage, or trialing new medications and exercise regimes. Whether your project is at the broader organizational level or a trial in an individual clinic area, publishing what you have tried and what you learned from it (including what didn’t work) can start or add to an existing body of evidence that helps push new practices forward, in Nova Scotia and beyond.

While getting published has many benefits, it can seem like a huge undertaking, especially when you’ve never done it before. Don’t let lack of experience stop you!

Use our 5 key considerations to take the first steps towards getting published and sharing your knowledge.

The key considerations highlighted in the slide deck above are not exhaustive, but hopefully they have provided you with new things to consider when sharing your work.

Library Services is here to help you throughout the information cycle—whether you are looking for relevant information to guide care or viable ways to publish as a first-time author. We can help you narrow down your publishing options, scope out the submission guidelines for a few titles, draft an abstract, narrow down promotional hashtags, or collaborate with you as an author. Get the ball rolling by booking a consultation with a librarian or reaching out to us at AskLibrary@nshealth.ca. We’re looking forward to learning about your project!
