Will my work be published? Professor Peter G Robinson Part of the journal’s mission is to support developing colleagues with better signposting to good science. This involves providing education and training, encouraging better use of theory and making more explicit use of reporting guidelines. We started some of this work at the symposium at June’s EADPH conference in Vilnius. As we put the finishing touches to the December issue, I reflected on whether the advice given in the symposium had been appropriate and effective. The answers were “Yes” and “No” respectively. So, with a relevant message that might not have reached everyone, I offer a new checklist for authors planning research or preparing for submission. Of course, editors and referees review papers for the journal using very similar criteria. Authors should ask themselves the following two questions and be guided by the sub-questions within each category.
