  • How good methodology helps with your writing
  • Reporting guidelines and other EQUATOR resources supporting good research
  • Surviving methodological and statistical review
  • Getting an editor’s attention
  • The importance of planning for the publication and dissemination of your research.

UK EQUATOR Centre Publication School 2016

EQUATOR Network Publication School 2015 attendees Hot on its heels, from 27 June-1 July, we will run our signature residential EQUATOR Publication School 2016 at St Catherine’s College.

This intensive and practical course will help researchers and medical writers build the skills and confidence to achieve success in planning, writing, publishing and disseminating research through traditional journals and other media channels.

As last year, the week-long course will be lead by an experienced, enthusiastic and knowledgeable team, featuring lectures and many practical sessions including:

  • How to write the key sections of your research article, including the methods, analysis and results, introduction, discussion, title and abstract
  • How to make the appropriate and optimal use of Reporting Guidelines including CONSORT, STROBE and PRISMA
  • How to target the right journal for your research, and navigate different editorial systems
  • How to deal with peer review comments, and how to peer review the work of others constructively
  • How to write for and communicate with a lay audience, and make the most of media opportunities

The course will also discuss the importance of writing and publishing protocols, and the use of reporting guidelines such as SPIRIT and PRISMA-P.

Discounts are available for early-career researchers, junior medical writers, NIHR/NHS, Oxford University etc.

Numbers for both these events are strictly limited to facilitate small-group learning, so book soon to avoid disappointment.
