Potential Agenda Items
- New section/format: like 12 Tips but with a new name and twist; a different type of review article. Perhaps this format would highlight the common misuses or misrepresentations of important med ed concepts and principles along with a few evidence based ideas on what to do differently. 12 TIPS emphasizes the right things to do while this format would review and explain what is being done wrong and why - then with tips to fix the broken not so evidence based practices. Below are examples of potential titles:
- "Potential Potholes and Evasive Strategies for Using Self-assessments for Program Evaluation" OR, my favourite (at the moment) ...
- "Black Ice: 10 Ways to get a Grip on Self-assessments for Program Evaluation" or "Black Ice: 10 Ways to get a Grip on Rating Content. The possibilities are endless!
- The section or format would be known as "Black Ice" or "Potholes" since people always take short cuts and use nicknames. If this seems like a good idea in principle then of course we welcome other potential names. I like "Black Ice" better but but there may be even more suitable names out there! Contest, maybe? Big prizes?
- Frequently, even after the second or third request for revisions (and maybe especially) I receive email messages like this one. I want you to know how authors respond to us and share the joy!
- Author A: "Hi Dr. D'Eon, We appreciate your dedication to our work and for reviewing our research once again. We have re-evaluated the entire article and submitted the changes made. Thank you again and we look forward to hearing from you!"
Me writing to a different Author (B): "Here are the draft page proofs so we can publish your article. I'm a compulsive perfectionist as an editor (but not so in other areas of life) so forgive me for suggesting yet more very minor changes!"
Author B: "Well I am pleased that you are compulsive in this area of work! Thank you for that."
