Funding agencies, study participants, and investigators work on the expectation that the results of a research study will be published and widely disseminated. Not to do so is a disservice to both the funding agency and the human subjects who participated in the research, as well as disrespectful to colleagues involved with the study. The desire to communicate results quickly coupled with the interest of faculty in securing additional publications can spawn many manuscripts from a single research effort. Accordingly, it is important to consider how many manuscripts should be written and what to logically include in each.
