Scholarly publications are essential for disseminating knowledge and advancing research.

In today’s competitive academic landscape, the ability to publish effectively is not just a skill but a necessity for securing funding, establishing credibility, and sharing findings.
Authors frequently encounter a range of challenges such as selecting the right journal, effectively responding to reviewers' comments, adhering to strict publication ethics, and ensuring their work stands out in a sea of scientific literature. Additionally, the intricacies of manuscript preparation, from structuring content to adhering to journal guidelines, can be daunting.

This course offers a comprehensive guide through these obstacles, aiming to significantly improve your writing, submitting, and publishing experiences.

By focusing on these common hurdles, our goal is to equip you with the knowledge and tools necessary to confidently approach the writing stage, thereby enhancing your chances of successfully publishing in peer-reviewed journals.

  • Publishing: short introduction
  • Publication strategy from journal selection to submission: what is it and why you need one
  • The essential of a good manuscript:
    • What makes a manuscript reader- (and editor-) friendly
    • Steps to effective outlining of the different parts
    • Recommendations on how to approach the writing process, references, submission package
    • Ethics in publishing (authorship, redundancy and plagiarism)
  • Understanding the peer review process, decision letters and responding to reviewers’ comments
  • Post acceptance strategies to disseminate your findings even further (e.g., social media)
  • Useful resources to improve your writing and checklists

This course is for anyone who needs to write manuscripts for peer-reviewed medical journals, such as medical advisors, scientific writers, medical writers, medical liaisons, scientific communicators, researchers, clinicians, and medical information professionals.

Participant experience
A basic understanding of the publication process would be desirable. However, no publishing or writing experience necessary (that’s what the course is for!).
