    Abstract

    A journal article is the most common form of international communication about scholarly work in the health sciences. Articles take a variety of forms and cover a range of interests, from editorials, opinion pieces, research papers, debates and systematic reviews to papers describing health and practice innovations. Journals are targeted to selected audiences and have specifi c presentation conventions. Choosing the right journal and preparing your article to be acceptable to that journal are important skills. You will usually have a supervisor, mentor or other member of staff who can offer advice (and who may be a co-author).
