Publication Planning

Managing deadlines for conferences, regulatory submissions, and internal milestones is an integral part of the publications process. We develop a customized timeline for every publication project to meet your deadlines and complement your overall communication strategy while following best practices.

Our publication managers submit publications to journals across the spectrum of scientific and medical fields. We have favored status with certain publishers, who grant faster manuscript processing times and a reduced cost for Open Access publication. Our team can align publication planning with your overall communication strategy and value proposition. Let us help you select the "right fit" journal for your manuscript and then tailor development accordingly.

Publication Development

Our medical writers are adept at taking your scientific or medical data and crafting a compelling storyline for readers. We collaborate with multidisciplinary research teams to combine different author voices into a cohesive publication message. Our approach to publication development is rigorous yet dynamic, allowing us to customize our process to meet your compliance requirements. Publication development activities include:
