Objective: To examine factors related to success in academic publishing for women in health education and promotion. Methods: Ten participants, identified as productive authors, submitted a copy of their curriculum vita and completed a questionnaire related to publishing productivity. Results: Factors that contributed to successful publication included personal attributes, such as self-discipline and effective time management, and situational factors, such as talented collaborators, access to mentoring, and grant funding. Tips for maximizing productivity and enhancing collaborative efforts with colleagues are also presented. Conclusion: Findings support correlates of productivity in faculty members that have been reported in other academic disciplines.
