Challenges of the two-year manuscript: Engaging in reflective practice with a manuscript about reflective practice
Objective: The intent of the project was to publish the results of completed survey research in a timely manner. Methods: Progress on the development of the manuscript was irregular, made more complicated by a lack of focus. Results: The resulting manuscript was finally submitted over two years after the data was collection. Lessons learned: Intentional reflection earlier in the process would have identified the underlying issues and generated solutions sooner.
