Publishing scientific research is essential to disseminate scientific and clinical data and to create trust in biomedical products. Even after all the time, effort and budget used to conduct clinical studies and investigations, how often do researchers say: “I wasn’t able to publish these results because of time constraints”? Publication’s statistics tell us it’s a common issue, even for clinical trials for which ethical guidelines mandate that the results of all studies should be published.
The main reason for not publishing stands in the lack of appropriate planning and resources. Publication planning has a fundamental impact upon companies, manufacturers and academic activity and needs to be aligned to strategic objectives.
Publication’s activities are now under the lenses of the regulatory authorities and of the general public.
In this workshop the key aspects and challenges of Publication Planning will be explored to give insights on what publication planning is, the importance of good publication planning and how the different figures involved in the development of disclosures can work together to succeed.
If you need to master the 7-step to maximise the impact of:

  • Scientific manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals
  • Data presented at congresses
  • Data published on clinical trial registries
  • Data included in Clinical Study Reports
  • Data shared through social media

this workshop is a must.
Attendees will benefit from the perspective and experience of an international expert in the strategic development and implementation of publication plans across a wide variety of scientific and clinical specialties.

This is a four-part interactive workshop featuring two days of focused lessons, discussions and exercises.
The workshop will be tailored to the needs of the attendees and includes modules on:

  1. The basics of communication
  2. The evolving environment of medical and scientific communications
  3. Identifying the communication’s gaps
  4. Knowing and identifying the most appropriate target(s)
  5. Organising writing projects
  6. Identifying the resources
  7. The preparation of an effective scientific communication plan

The hands-on, interactive format of this workshop provides a rich experience and the best chance for success.
