Opportunities Abound for Annals Education

Meeting attendees interested in improving their scholarly research abilities have a number of opportunities at the Annual Meeting to learn more about publishing in The Annals of Thoracic Surgery.

A Tuesday morning Early Riser session, The Annals Academy, will provide authors with the necessary tools to turn their data into interesting and potentially practice-improving scholarly articles. The session will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. in Room 222A; unlike in previous years, you do not need to purchase a separate ticket to attend.

Annals editorial staff also will be available to assist attendees with new submissions, figure editing, journal CME, mailing address changes, and other questions in Room 121C from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Monday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, and 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

Finally, Annals editorial staff will host several tutorials in the Exhibit Hall. Visit Booth #938 to participate in any of the following sessions:

  • New Submissions—Staff will help meeting presenters and other authors navigate the online process to submit their manuscripts.
  • Journal CME—Learn how to access CME content on the Annals website and how these activities are developed.
  • Figure Clinic—Authors can bring their figure files and learn how to optimally display images, including how to identify image resolution and font size, as well as how to submit files for Annals peer review.
