After attending the course, the participant will have improved knowledge of clinical research and publishing. She/he will be familiar with the most common principles of study design – including those for treatment and diagnostic test studies – and systematic reviews & meta-analysis. Considerable focus will be directed to the key components of a manuscript, with practical activities equipping participants with the knowledge required to prepare their work for publication as an original submission to a scientific journal. The way journals work – including the review process – will be illustrated, we will explain the way to deal with promoting your work via press releases and social media, and we will look ahead into the future of science publishing.
There will be short, TED-like talks, ‘hands-on’ activities, Q&A’s, and ample opportunity for informal interaction.
Young clinicians and scientists, people at the onset of their academic career, and all those who wish to familiarize themselves with present-day ideas about designing a study, performing it, publishing its findings and raising its citation by bringing the outcome to the attention of as many people as possible.
