Conclusion

The primary intent of this article was to encourage those who are thinking about getting started in educational research toward doing so. Factors deemed to relate to success in this process include having a low threshold for appreciating the potential value of ideas, selecting a topic that is important, maintaining enthusiasm, setting achievable goals, mentoring, networking, teamwork, maintaining focus, and not giving up! At Academic Psychiatry, we welcome your inquiries about how to get started, and we are delighted to offer feedback (and words of encouragement) as you pursue this important work for our field and for our present and future learners. The spirit we wish to foster is one of collegiality and support in all of your endeavors in educational research.
