The international professional contacts which develop increase your perspective and ability to publish...’ (Schein, Farndon, & Fingerhut, 2003, p. 5)
Why should You Write ‘you don’t write because you want to say something; you writ because you’ve something to say’ Scot Fitzgerald You write to share your findings, experiences and thoughts with the clinical community The main purpose of professional publishing is to disseminate knowledge
Who Publishes ‘A small group of highly productive scholars generate a disproportionately large number of entries to the literature of any given discipline’ (Samson, G. E., M. E. Graue, T. Weinstein, & H. J. Walberg1984 p.311) These individuals have characteristics and experiences that they believe contribute to their high level of productivity http://www.google.com/imgres?start=210&sa=X&rlz=1T4MXGB_enUS544US545&biw=1280&bih=563&tb m=isch&tbnid=ou6enku4fs4IBM:&imgrefurl=http://www.fotosearch.com/photos-images/carrying- burden.html&docid=-FSv- fT86ThLaM&imgurl=http://sr.photos2.fotosearch.com/bthumb/CSP/CSP990/k10702168.jpg&w=125&h=1 70&ei=LDp9UtmtOZPGkQezt4CoCA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=452&vpy=133&dur=156&hovh=136&hovw=1 00&tx=110&ty=59&page=8&tbnh=136&tbnw=100&ndsp=32&ved=1t:429,r:37,s:200,i:115
Characteristics shared by Highly Productive Clinical Publishers and the Environments in which They Work Creativity Do you value creativity? Vitality Individual Environment Vested Interest Goal directed
Creativity 1. Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they're also often quiet and at rest. 2. Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time. 3. Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility. 4.Creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy, and a rooted sense of reality. 5. Creative people tend to be both extroverted and introverted. 6. Creative people are humble and proud at the same time. 7. Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping. 8. Creative people are both rebellious and conservative. 9.Most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well. 10. Creative people's openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment. (Csikszentmihalyi, 1996)
Vitality A vital person is someone who infectiously energize those with whom they come in contact; their aliveness and spirit are expressed in personal productivity and activity (Peterson and Seligman, 2004). A vital institution infectiously energize it work force because of its aliveness and spirit communicated through a vision, goals, and support and interest in its people as the life- blood of its existence
Vested Interest in Publishing Interest in contributing to knowledge Facilitating promotion in clinical or academic rank Enhancing personal prestige Fulfilling a sense of scholarly obligation http://www.support-my-decision.org.au/vested-interest
Goal Directed ‘Few scholars write only when “inspired”; goal setting and the “habit of writing” are required for sustained levels of productivity” (Schein, Farndon, & Fingerhut, 2003) http://www.addwithease.com/what-the-ef-executive- functions-goal-directed-persistence-strategy/
Integrating the Clinician & the Workplace What are the personal and workplace characteristics that enhance publishing? Do they exist with you and your work ?
What Does the Research Show Personal vitality characteristics that support publishing: Adequate time to conduct research, teaching, patient care, and administrative task Protected time to address research and teaching activities Esteem and value among local colleagues for work in research, teaching, and patient care
Workplace Characteristics that Support Publishing Established collegial network Clearly communicated institutional vision Clearly communicated administrative expectations for Research Teaching Administrative task accomplishment Therapist working in environments with these characteristics are four times more likely to be highly productive in publishing
Role of the Workplace There is a greater relationship between clinicians or faculty demonstrating high levels of productivity and certain workplace characteristics of vitality than personal characteristics of vitality.
Personal Characteristics Gender demonstrated a higher level of predictive significance (male faculty were more likely to publish > 3 publications per year as compared to female faculty) when analyzed with individual factors controlling for demographics and vitality
Personal Characteristics Faculty with > 3 publications per year were more likely to be older than those with < 3 publications per year (OR = 1.048). Age demonstrated a higher level of predictive significance when analyzed with institutional/leadership factors controlling for demographics and vitality (p = 0.0262)
Education Education at the doctoral level demonstrated a high level of predictive significance when analyzed with both institutional/leadership and individual factors controlling for demographics and vitality (p = 0.0299/p = 0.0377). The odds ratio estimates indicated that doctoral prepared faculty were 5.3 times more likely to publish > 3 publications per year
