Matarese V. Emerging concepts in high-impact publishing: insights from the First Brazilian Colloquium on High Impact Research and Publishing. Annali dell'Istituto Superiore di Sanità 2010;46(4):451-5 doi: 10.4415/ANN_10_04_14 At the First Brazilian Colloquium on High Impact Research and Publishing (14-16 April, 2010), editors of leading biomedical journals discussed aspects of scientific reporting that favor acceptance or lead to immediate rejection. Many of the issues raised at this meeting are relevant to researchers and authors, especially non-native English speakers, who wish to improve the impact of their own scientific writings. This commentary summarizes the editors' debate and uses the discussion that followed as the basis to analyze emerging concepts in high-impact publishing.
