Writing Partners Program
The Journal of Histotechnology Writing Partnership Program (WPP) was established to assist individuals in the process of writing a manuscript for the Journal. Often, individuals writing their first manuscript on histotechnology relating new methods, modifications, or technical hints need guidance through the publishing process.  Writing Partners will help these individuals with manuscript composition using the JOH “information for authors” guidelines.
Ideally, WPP volunteers should have skill in scientific writing, a previous publication in JOH, and expertise in any area of histotechnology, e.g. clinical or research. Mentoring will be particularly helpful to the inexperienced or those whose first language is not English, in order to produce a final, quality publication in JOH.  Volunteer Writing Partners must value diplomacy, confidentiality, privacy, patience, and constructive criticism, while providing examples and encouraging the author to write in his or her unique style. The WPP editorial processes may all be accomplished via e-mail communication.

Contact Gayle Callis, Assistant Editor of the Journal of Histotechnology (gayle.callis@bresnan.net or 406-570-5978) if you are interested in serving as a Writing Partner.
