New Submission Requirement: Educational Summary Report

As of November 15, 2015, all submissions to MedEdPORTAL Publications require an Educational Summary Report (ESR). The ESR provides a summary overview of the entire submission and serves as a guide for understanding the purpose and scope of the resource. Authors and users should be aware that a MedEdPORTAL publication consists of the ESR and all associated resources contained within the submission.

Authors with active submissions are strongly encouraged to convert their Instructor Guide to an ESR. This option is available to all authors with submissions in process. Regardless of submission status, developing an ESR will increase the quality and value of the submission and potential publication. Information found in an Instructor Guide easily translates into an ESR. Please note that depending on the status of the submission, the associate editor and/or peer reviewers will review the ESR prior to publication. If accepted, staff will reformat the ESR based on MeEdPORTAL’s new publication style format.

For more information and guidance, please visit Developing an Educational Summary Report.

Faculty Affairs Collection Announcement

The AAMC Group on Faculty Affairs (GFA) is delighted to announce a new Faculty Affairs Collection in MedEdPORTAL. The Faculty Affairs Collection is intended to replace the GFA Toolkit previously published on the GFA website with an expanded, “living” compendium of current, innovative peer-reviewed methods for advancing faculty affairs. The objectives of the Faculty Affairs Collection are to provide (1) faculty affairs deans, staff, and other institutional leaders with tangible, practice-based, peer-reviewed resources for improving practice in faculty affairs, and (2) the opportunity for faculty affairs deans, staff, and other institutional leaders to disseminate best practices in faculty affairs through publishing resources developed, implemented, and refined at one or more institutions that can be adopted or adapted for use at other institutions.

Among other topics, the Faculty Affairs Collection will address issues such as the recruitment, appointment, management, promotion, and governance of faculty members, as well as related professional development programming in such areas as career advancement and new faculty orientation and onboarding programs.  For more information, please visit GFA Faculty Affairs Collection.
