AACN New Editorial Consults, Other Publishing Events at NTI 2014 If you're curious to learn more about publishing through AACN, NTI2014 sessions and events will help you. New this year is the opportunity to meet with an editor for a one-on-one consultation. Monday, May 19, the editors of American Journal of Critical Care (AJCC), Critical Care Nurse (CCN) and AACN Advanced Critical Care (ACC) will join a lively Q&A session, "Publishing in AACN Critical Care Journals," 12:15-1:30 p.m., in Mile High 4B. After each editor introduces her or his journal, it's open microphone time for your questions about publishing. Starting Tuesday morning, the editors will be in booth #1013 in the Exhibit Hall to talk with participants at these times: Do you want to discuss and develop your publishing ideas further? Sign up on NTI Network for your own editorial consult. With limited availability and advance signup required, these one-on-one 15-minute consults offer access to one AACN journal editor at a time for discussion about individual publishing ideas and projects. Maybe you'd like to develop your poster presentation or talk into a publishable article. Or you have questions about publishing your research. That's what these consults are for.
