Reflections on writing journal articles

Pawlyn, Jillian (2021). Reflections on writing journal articles. Learning Disability Practice, 24(5), article no. e2074.



There is an expectation that should use evidence to inform practice, but having access to this evidence requires other nurses to write about and publish their work to generate new evidence. There is also an expectation that nurses publish to improve knowledge, although for some the thought of writing can seem challenging. This article presents a reflection on the author's experience of writing, from her first attempt at publishing through to becoming a published author, and then publishing continuing professional development articles. It provides insight into the work involved in becoming a published author.
