HOW TO GET PUBLISHED: TIPS, STRATEGIES, AND CONSULTATION FROM JAACAP AND JAACAP CONNECT [Meeting Abstract]
Objectives: Participants in this Workshop will learn methods by which to overcome common pitfalls and obstacles to scholarly writing and publication and will establish skills essential to getting papers published. Relatively few students, trainees, and clinicians publish scientific or other educational manuscripts because of limitations of time, experience, and access to mentorship. However, facilitating publishing opportunities for these groups is important because the process of authoring and publishing scientific manuscripts can increase competency in research literacy, engagement in evidence-based practices, and other skills needed to increase mastery in child and adolescent psychiatry.
Method(s): We provide attendees a "backstage pass" experience, combining practical instruction with individualized, hands-on training and consultation to build an early foundation for getting published. Topics covered include how to choose a publishable topic of interest and how to utilize and maintain mentorship relationships. Attendees also will receive personalized consultation and mentorship around their individual goals and their works in progress from peers and our presenters, who have significant and diverse experiences with authorship and publication-particularly with JAACAP and JAACAP Connect.
Result(s): Attendees will learn practical steps toward getting published in scholarly journals and strategies to overcome current limitations and obstacles. Participants also will have the opportunity to get started with mentored authorship and publishing experiences available through JAACAP Connect.
Conclusion(s): This Workshop provides medical students, residents, fellows, early-career psychiatrists, and other clinicians with limited scholarly experience both practical knowledge and foundational skills essential to writing and getting published. AC, ADV, R

Editors' Best of 2020 [Editorial]
There is, in the content of the Journal, an embarrassment of riches, and picking a "best" seems to demand a certain qualification: is the "best" the most interesting, most surprising, most educational, most important, most provocative, most enjoyable? How to choose? We are hardly unbiased and can admit to a special affection for the ones that we and the authors worked hardest on, hammering version after version into shape. Acknowledging these biases, here are the 2020 articles that we think deserve your attention, or at least a second read.

A Case of Clinical Scholarship [Editorial]
A 32-year-old child and adolescent psychiatry resident with a history of presenting an abstract at a local psychiatric conference during residency and fourth authorship on an immunotherapy paper from a summer internship during medical school presents with a new-onset desire to write a case report. She has just come off her consultation liaison rotation, during which she consulted on a 12-year-old boy with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, disruptive mood dysregulation disorder, and low depressive state hospitalized for pseudoseizures, a new-onset inability to walk, and aggressive outbursts. He had a negative magnetic resonance imaging scan, negative computed tomography scan, negative laboratory test results, and an unremarkable lumbar puncture. Based on an equivocal electroencephalogram, a neurology resident decided to prescribe a mood stabilizer, obtained it himself from the pharmacy, and administered it to the patient intravenously, only then realizing that it was six times the intended loading dose. Before anybody could stop him, the resident erased all documentation about the medication and fled the city. Nevertheless, that afternoon, before the error and fraud were caught by a pharmacist and before the child and his family were notified, the child's symptoms appeared to resolve and the child walked comfortably for the first time in months. The child and adolescent psychiatry resident is tentatively titling the case report, "Resolution of Conversion Disorder With a Megadose of Unknown Mood Stabilizer."
