ONLINE TRAINING: Writing Articles for Peer-Reviewed Journals in the Health Sciences

Publishing scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals is essential for communicating research and creating trust in biomedical products. Scientific papers are also required to meet ethical, transparency, and regulatory requirements for pharmaceutical and medical devices. However, writing a scientific paper and getting it accepted in a reputable journal can be time-consuming, complicated, and frustrating.

If you need to know how to write a scientific article for a peer-reviewed journal, this online workshop is a must. The intensive, focused training in this workshop will give you the tools to improve how you write a scientific paper, save time, and maximise your chances of success.

Attendees will benefit from the perspective and experience of two international experts in writing scientific papers and their management. Between them, they have successfully published many hundreds of articles across a wide variety of scientific and clinical specialties.


This is a four-part interactive workshop featuring a full day of focused lessons, discussions and exercises, followed by a full day of intensive individual and group work.

Parts one and two are tailored to the needs of the attendees and includes modules on organising writing projects, writing in good scientific English, creating an optimal flow of ideas in an article, selecting journals, communicating with editors and reviewers, and using tools to improve how to write scientific articles that effectively communicate the key results of a study.

During parts three and four, the instructors work with attendees on individual or small-group writing a scientific paper. If attendees cannot bring their own materials to work on, they will be provided with data and basic information to create a scientific publication.

Attendees are expected to bring any relevant source material (protocols, study reports, slides, abstracts, draft manuscripts, etc.). The hands-on, interactive format of this workshop provides a rich experience and the best chance for success.


Part one - The basics of scientific articles

  • Introduction
  • The environment of scientific communication
  • Using guidelines to simplify your work 

 

Part two – Practical aspects of writing a scientific article

  • The reader-centred approach
  • Basic grammatical techniques in English to improve your writing
  • Organising and managing your writing projects 
  • Communicating with editors and reviewers


Part three – Practical work: getting started

  • Focusing your writing by using problem statements and outlining
  • Contents and flow of the different sections of scientific articles
  • Individualized/group work: problem statement, concept outline, title*


Part four – Practical work: building the article

  • Choosing a journal
  • Presenting data: designing and describing effective tables and figures
  • Individualized/group work: detailed outline, applying guidelines, data selection, journal selection


*Participants are asked to bring protocols, study reports, slides, abstracts, draft manuscripts, or other documents they are working on from which to build an article. If they cannot bring their own materials, participants will be provided with data and basic information to create a manuscript.
