UTOPIAN Writing for publication workshop
Jun 8, 2018
The workshop is organized by UTOPIAN and will be held on Friday, June 8, 2018 at Department of Family & Community Medicine.
The session will be led by Drs. Frank Sullivan & Nick Pimlott and will consists of two parts; you can choose to attend morning only or the whole day.
The morning session is aimed at presenting main characteristics of an article which is likely to be accepted by a journal, making informed decisions on time management and journal choice, setting a ‘writer’s brief’ by making decisions in five key areas, using brain-storming techniques to expand this brief, understanding the structure of each of the four main sections of a standard journal article, constructing a plan for each section and understand the advantages and pitfalls of internal reviewing.
The afternoon session of the workshop will be a hands-on, tutor-led session consisting of actual writing of your own paper with target of completing 80-90% of it.
Given the focus of the workshop, it would be most beneficial to attend if you have study results you want to write up or any other more substantial idea for a paper/other piece so that this is as practical as possible.
If you are interested in attending, please apply by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
