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 2-day, intensive, interactive course will introduce participants to the principles and practice of publication science (Journalology). Participants will gain an understanding of the myriad of factors that can influence and impact the integrity of the scientific record and access strategies and resources to deal with them.
Reporting guideline developers, journal editors, and scientists: Andrea Tricco, Martin Offringa, David Moher, Rick Glazier, An-Wen Chan, Kelly Cobey and Nancy Butcher.
$150. Rate for trainees: $75. Trainee status includes all undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and medical residents.
Through the generous support of the Ontario SPOR Support Unit (OSSU; http://ossu.ca), the EQUATOR CANADA Publication School is pleased to announce a competition for 5 EQUATOR CANADA scholarships valued at up to $750 CAD each to help defray the costs of attendance for trainees travelling from outside of the Toronto area. You will be sent an application form upon acceptance to the course.
