UK EQUATOR Centre Publication School: October 2021 (online)

05/05/2021

Now online! 5-8 October 2021, 12:30-17:00 BST (GMT+1)

Overview

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!

June 2019 participant

You’ll experience four afternoons of live, online 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!

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. Publication School is highly interactive, with all-group discussion and small-group exercises and discussion. Participants are 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 12:30-17:00 BST (GMT+1), with regular comfort breaks.

We will not record the sessions, but participants will receive the electronic course workbook with all notes and exercises. We regret that we are unable to offer live captions.
