Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research

CANCELLED: UK EQUATOR Centre Publication School: July 2020


We regret that the July 2020 UK EQUATOR Centre Publication School has been cancelled.

16-17 July 2020, Botnar Research Centre, University of Oxford



The UK EQUATOR Centre’s Publication School is designed for early-career researchers and students. It aims to give you a smooth writing process that results in a published article that is fit for purpose.

It broke academic writing for publication down into really manageable and achievable guidance points. Made me less worried about writing my next article!

You’ll experience two intense days of learning led by methodological and writing experts from the UK EQUATOR Centre and the Centre for Statistics in Medicine. Through group work, discussion, and practical exercises, we cover everything you need to know to plan, write, and publish your health-related research study.

Excellent scope – right the way from authorship and journal selection to submission/peer review/dissemination – not just the bits in the middle!
