Communicating Your Science: From Blank Screen to Published Article for Students, Trainees, and Early-Stage Professionals-LIVE
02/03/2020 at 11:00 AM (EST)   |  90 minutes
02/03/2020 at 11:00 AM (EST)   |  90 minutes Disseminating the results of scientific research as manuscripts and getting them published is the ultimate accumulation of research and goal of all scientists. We want to advance the cumulative knowledge of all working in our field. The scientific writing process can be intimidating for new researchers and early-career healthcare professionals. Preparing a clear and concise manuscript from a bulky clinical study report designed to communicate thousands of pages of data to regulatory authorities is a challenge for those who work in industry, academia, or conduct research. Building on a workshop presented at the 2019 American College of Clinical Pharmacology® (ACCP) Annual Meeting, this webinar combines lectures from accomplished researchers, including the editors in chief of the ACCP journals. Attendees will be guided through the steps of drafting an outline, completing a manuscript, and understanding the key elements of the review process for publication. The webinar provides the opportunity to acquire knowledge on writing, organizing, and revising of manuscripts.
