This hour-long session is designed to provide residents with valuable insights into the intricate processes and essential milestones associated with submitting scientific papers. The primary objective is to equip participants with a comprehensive understanding of the journey involved in sharing scientific research through scholarly publications.

The session will commence with a brief presentation delivered by an expert in the field. This expert is well-versed in the nuances of academic publishing, possessing a wealth of knowledge on the standards, expectations, and best practices within the scientific community. During the presentation, attendees can expect to gain insights into the key aspects of preparing and submitting scientific papers, including but not limited to writing style, formatting, literature review, methodology, results, and conclusion.

Following the presentation, the session will transition into a discussion format, providing residents with an opportunity to engage actively with the expert. Attendees are encouraged to ask specific questions related to their concerns or challenges in the paper submission process. This interactive segment aims to address individual queries and offer tailored advice based on the unique circumstances of the participants.

The collective exchange of ideas and experiences during the discussion phase will foster a collaborative learning environment.
