DiSIMinate2Buld process: How does it work?

Simulation is a form of experiential learning. DiSIMinate2build (D2B) is a multi-stage, asynchronous process that provides experiential learning opportunities for research trainees and ECRs to build scholarship capacity in the field of simulation.

Our unique and incremental process is designed to provide opportunities to present work-in-progress using Cureus JMS: Annals of Simulation virtual meeting platform as posters, and curate expert feedback to enhance the scientific quality and rigour. Next, our team will work with the authors to transition the work-in-progress into complete projects published on Cureus JMS: Annals of Simulation channel as scholarly papers.

We accept completed projects and work-in-progress that fall within two categories: 

  • Research 
  • Innovation


Cureus JMS: Annals of Simulation virtual meeting posters presentations can be submitted on "rolling bases" all year from January to December.  All posters and accompanied abstracts are subjected to a peer-review process, and our asynchronous platform is used to curate feedback from experts in the field, as well as other learners. Thus authors can share their work and benefit from the online mentorship and collaborations. This format builds capable researchers and provide an opportunity for them to engage in research networks.


After implementing the feedback received from posters, as well as input from our team, the authors are encouraged to submit their work to Cureus JMS: Annals of Simulation as full papers. The types of papers accepted are described in details here: Instructions for Authors

Note that the publication is not guaranteed, as our journal is peer reviewed and acceptance of final papers will depend on an independent scientific review. The peer-review process ensures rigorous PubMed indexing while the open access publishing format ensures widespread knowledge dissemination and reach.
