Preparing quality improvement, research, and evidence-based practice manuscripts.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Understanding how to organize a manuscript reporting quality improvement (QI), research, and evidence-based practice (EBP) initiatives is important to provide essential information for readers to evaluate the findings for possible use in their own settings and replicate studies. Using guidelines for reporting QI, research studies, and EBP initiatives will help ensure authors submitting manuscripts to peer-reviewed publications report essential information and communicate it clearly to readers. This framework also guides the design and implementation of a project to ensure the information needed for a manuscript is collected and recorded for use in dissemination when the project is completed. Providing this specific information may also affect the likelihood of the manuscript being accepted for publication.
