Intensive Short Course, Sept 15 - 18, 2020
University of Zagreb – School of Medicine, Andrija Štampar School of Public Health and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Institute of Public Health in affiliation with the Berlin School of Public Health are organising a postgraduate continuing medical education course: "How to publish a research paper in a major biomedical journal".
About the Short Course
Publishing visibly is closely linked with success in obtaining grants, yet competition for space is fierce, particularly in major biomedical journals. As research methods evolve and the publishing landscape changes, continuing education in knowledge and skills needed to produce quality research articles is necessary. This is all the more relevant as capacity is strengthened for health data sciences and decisions are increasingly made based on solid evidence.
Participants will gain knowledge and develop multiple skills needed to produce a high-quality research paper. This includes posing an important and relevant research question, searching biomedical literature, choosing an appropriate study design, writing a research protocol, using electronic data capture solutions, conducting data analysis using the statistical program R and interface RStudio, critically interpreting the findings, and approptiate referencing of previous work. From methods to manuscript, participants will develop the necessary skills to successfully produce a manuscript suitable for submission to a top biomedical journal.
The course is designed for medical doctors, students and graduates of biomedical and health disciplines.
3 ECTS points
