Scholarly publications are designed to disseminate knowledge.
Nowadays, publishing papers is increasingly important to gain further fundings and, as the COVID-19 era taught us, to share findings with the wider scientific community.
There's no single trick to getting published, but there are a lot of ways that you can improve your chances of acceptance. Most importantly, there are a lot of ways to make the process smooth and even enjoyable, despite being an often dreaded one.

This course will take you through the publishing process and will give the basic foundation knowledge to improve your writing, submitting and publishing experiences.

The goal of this training is to make you feel ready to approach the writing stage in a way that enhances your chances to successfully publish your paper in a peer-reviewed journal.

  • Publishing: short intro
  • 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 ( 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!).

Interactive lesson with practical exercises.
