The IPDJ wants to enable novice writers to publish their practice development work in a scholarly way. We believe that the Critical Reflection on Practice Development section of the journal may be a good starting place for novice writers and have created some resources which can be downloaded below. We would also encourage novice writers to form a writing partnership with a more experienced writer. We may be able to help with the identification of potential partnerships.
