“Thank you for the inspiration and energy that you have given me to go back home to my students and colleagues and tell them again and again about EQUATOR”

Many published research articles are reported badly. They often provide insufficient, misleading, or ambiguous information, and so their usefulness is severely compromised.

This lively and practical course is designed to build your skills and confidence to achieve success in planning, writing, publishing, and disseminating your research through traditional journals and other publication and media channels. It will cover:

  • How to write the key sections of your research article, including the methods, analysis and results, introduction, discussion, title, and abstract
  • How to make appropriate and optimal use of reporting guidelines like CONSORT, STROBE, and PRISMA.
  • The importance of writing and publishing protocols using reporting guidelines such as SPIRIT and PRISMA-P.
  • How to target the right journal for your research and navigate different editorial systems
  • How to deal with peer review comments and constructively peer review the work of others
  • How to write for and communicate with healthcare professionals and the public, and make the most of media opportunities
