EQUATOR Canada Publication School

Dates to be announced in 2018. 

A course designed for biomedical researchers of all career stages and subspecialties. Researchers and physicians often go on to become authors, peer reviewers, or scientific editors. The literature suggests they are often unprepared for these roles. This course will introduce participants to the principles of publication science (i.e. journalology). Participants will gain an understanding of the myriad of factors that can influence and impact the integrity of the scientific record and access strategies and resources to deal with them.

Topics will include:

• How to select a journal 

• How to navigate peer review and be published 

• How biomedical journals operate 

• How to choose and use reporting guidelines 

• Publication models and publication metrics 

• Publication ethics and research integrity

 • Publication bias and its consequences 

• Life after publication: Science in the media

• Engaging patients, parents and policy makers from research design to publication

Course tutors include reporting guideline developers, Andrea Tricco, Martin Offringa, David Moher,  Rick Glazier, An-Wen Chan, Kelly Cobey, and Nancy Butcher. Registration fee $150 ($75 for trainees).

Please apply here. If you have any questions,  please email Andrea Chiaramida (achiara@sickkids.ca).
