This article, the second in a five-part series, explores the ways in which best practice might be presented successfully through articles published within journals. The article discusses the importance of preparatory research and 'thinking time', the need for an article plan and how to target journals and approach staff. Information and advice is provided on writing, redrafting and dealing with the peer review process. There is an emphasis on consultation and obtaining feedback on the potential article throughout the planning and writing process.
