Dr. David Cone, Chief of the Section of EMS, and current Editor-in-Chief of Academic Emergency Medicine shared his thoughts with us yesterday in conference on how to successfully translate one’s research efforts into a manuscript that gets published.
 
Check out the slides and some great resources highlighted in the lecture here:
 

 
The article that Dr. Cone mentioned on probably the best resource on the proper use and formulation of figures for medical manuscripts is:
Schriger, D. L., & Cooper, R. J. Achieving graphical excellence: Suggestions and methods for creating high-quality visual displays of experimental data. Annals of Emergency Medicine [serial online]. 2001; 37: (1), 75-87. http://linkinghub.elsevier.com/retrieve/pii/S0196064401750639.
 
To keep things lighthearted, Dr. Cone included Weird Al’s “Word Crimes” as possible resource to review grammatical mistakes to avoid in your manuscript submissions.
