Bowel Sounds Ep. 11: Mel Heyman – Advice from an Editor-in-Chief

In this episode, hosts Drs. Temara Hajjat and Jason Silverman talk to former NASPGHAN Editor-in-Chief for JPGN, and current Editor for JPGN Reports, Dr. Mel Heyman.  We discuss his experiences in these roles including the challenges and the rewards, as well as reviewing a number of the key initiatives undertaken during his tenure. 

We also discuss solid advice for aspiring authors, including the most common mistake authors make with their submissions. There is also time for a pitch for being  journal reviewers, particularly for junior faculty. 

As always, the discussion, views, and recommendations in this podcast are the sole responsibility of the hosts and guests and are subject to change over time with advances in the field.

Produced by: Jason Silverman
