EQUATOR Publication School – 2-day workshop with EQUATOR Canada


Canadian EQUATOR Centre 2-day PUBLICATION SCHOOL workshop
The principles of publication science
Toronto, Canada, 5-6 October 2017

The EQUATOR Network’s flagship Publication School, developed by the UK EQUATOR Centre at the University of Oxford, is now in Canada! Join the Canadian EQUATOR Centre in Toronto, Ontario on this CME-accredited course for biomedical researchers of all career stages and subspecialties.

Researchers and physicians often go on to become authors, peer reviewers, or scientific editors. The literature suggests they are often unprepared for these roles. This course will introduce you to the principles of publication science. You’ll learn about the factors that can influence and affect the integrity of the scientific record, and about strategies and resources to deal with them.

Course topics:

  • How biomedical journals operate
  • How to write a manuscript
  • How to choose and use reporting guidelines
  • How to select a journal
  • How to navigate peer review and be published
  • Publication models
  • Publication metrics
  • Publication ethics and research integrity
  • Publication bias and its consequences

Course tutors include: reporting guideline developers, Andrea Tricco, An-Wen Chan, Martin Offringa, and David Moher
