Medical Physics Workshop - Update: Journal Improvement Activities and Guidance On Writing and Reviewing Papers

At the 2015 57th AAPM Annual Meeting & Exhibition, a Special 1 hour Workshop was held in Memory of our Journal Manager, Penny S. Slattery. Editor-in-Chief Jeff Williamson presented a talk on Vision for the Journal Medical Physics and Status of Current Initiatives, Therapy Physics Editor Shiva Das presented a talk on Improving Manuscript Quality via Structured Reviews, Enhanced Scientific Category Taxonomy, and Outreach, and Imaging Physics Editor Mitch Goodsitt presented a talk on Writing Good Scientific papers and Responding to Critiques. The power point slides for the presentation on Writing Good Scientific papers and Responding to Critiques are available here. A substantial audience turned out for the workshop, and the discussions that followed the PowerPoint presentations were lively and insightful. The audience’s response to the workshop was one more indication of the enthusiasm of AAPM members for their journal, and the interest of medical physicists in general in the expansion of Medical Physics into new areas of imaging and oncology, and in the growth of the journal as the leading publication in medical physics worldwide.
