Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research

UK EQUATOR Centre Publication School: April 2023



We are delighted to offer Publication School in person in Oxford again, after a 3-year hiatus.


The UK EQUATOR Centre’s Publication School is designed for early-career researchers and students in health research, with a focus on clinical research. 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!

Using group work, discussion, and practical exercises, we cover everything you need to plan, write, and publish your health-related research study.
