Writing workshop: Get your paper published
Location:The University of Sydney, Charles Perkins Centre, Johns Hopkins Drive, Camperdown
If you're keen to forge a career involving medical research, one of the most valuable things you can do is master the art of scientific writing.
The ability to write a convincing scientific manuscript is such a rare skill that learning how to do it will set you ahead of your competition in terms of publishing your data, landing and keeping your ideal position, and obtaining fellowships and grants.
The good news is that ¬ just like doing statistical analyses, writing original research articles is a learnable skill. You don't need to be a literary genius (or even a native English speaker) to be able to write manuscripts that are publishable in high-ranking journals ¬ you just need to know the "protocol".
This full-day workshop is based on extensive linguistic research into the essential elements of successfully published peer reviewed research papers. It will guide you thorough a step-by step formula that takes the uncertainty, confusion and inefficiency out of the paper-writing process, regardless of your level of experience.
This workshop is for Honours students, post graduate research students, junior post-doctoral fellows, doctors and other health professionals who want to improve their confidence and efficiency in writing original research articles and systematic reviews in health and medical research (e.g. basic, clinical, epidemiology, population health). As this is a hands-on practical workshop, it is best suited to those who already have a set of analysed original research results that are ready to be written up as a paper, or an early draft of an original manuscript or systematic review (not a narrative review).
The workshop is led by Associate Professor Amanda Salis, ( sydney.edu.au/medicine/people/academics/profiles/amanda.salis.php ) an NHMRC Senior Research Fellow with decades of experience in writing biomedical research papers.
