Interview with Jenny Devenport
Publications are part of the bigger communication plan which also covers PR, scientific dialog, promotion, training, and internal communications. Writing publications should follow an overall strategy for the compound or therapeutic area.

They should not be an afterthought or seen as a pure incentive.
