    Publishing is critical to the scientific profession yet few opportunities exist for science PhDs to gain formal training in this area. At the Disease Drivers of Aging: 2016 Advances in Geroscience Summit, presented by the Gerontological Society of America, the American Federation for Aging Research, the Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group, and the New York Academy of Sciences on April 13–14, 2016, Brooke Grindlinger shared her expertise as a former editor for the Journal of Clinical Investigation. Her talk, titled "Editor's Guide to Writing and Publishing Your Paper," gave attendees an inside look into the editorial review process and how to present the results of their work.

    Grindlinger covered all the steps from selecting the right journal to dealing with the revision and resubmission process. She delved into manuscript writing, providing tips for how to prepare each section of a paper, and covered the most common mistakes to avoid. She also described the peer review process, including how referees are selected, the common reasons for rejection, and strategies for following up or appealing a negative decision.
