Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research
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 four afternoons 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!

For the first time, the course will be held live over Zoom. Participants will need to have Zoom downloaded, rather than using the browser version, as we will be using registrations. We will teach using shared slides, webcam, and audio. We’re excited to maintain the highly interactive nature of Publication School in this online format, with all-group discussion and small-group exercises and discussion. Participants will be welcome to use text chat, mic, and/or webcam in the main room, but will need at least a mic for small-group work in breakout rooms.
Sessions will run 13:00-16:30 GMT, with regular comfort breaks.
As one of the things previous participants have enjoyed about Publication School is the chance to meet other early-career researchers, participants will have the option to stay on until ~17:00 each day for informal conversation.
We do not plan to record the sessions, but participants will receive the electronic course workbook with all notes and exercises. We are investigating whether we can offer live captions for the sessions.
Places are limited and will be allocated in order of application.
£90: University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes students / NDORMS staff
£160: University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes staff / students of other universities
£320: Staff of other academic institutions, non-profits, and the NHS

In a previous post detailing my time with the EQUATOR Network, I spoke about my work on the STrengthening the Reporting of Observational Studies in Epidemiology (STROBE) statement. STROBE is one of the original “core” reporting guidelines which provides guidance...
