Publishing scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals is essential for communicating medical research. 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.

This workshop will help you start writing scientific articles for peer-reviewed journals in the right way, effectively communicate your findings and conclusions and optimise the writing process.

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-module interactive workshop where lessons, discussions, and exercises will be followed by intensive group work.
Parts one and two are tailored to the needs of the attendees and include modules on organising a writing project, writing in good scientific English, and creating an optimal flow of ideas.
During parts three and four, the methods for selecting the target journal and effectively communicating the key results of a study will be discussed. Then, the instructors will work with attendees to create or improve an existing manuscript. If attendees cannot bring their own materials to work on, they will be provided with data and basic information to create a manuscript.

Attendees are expected to bring, if available, 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.
