Planning for publication: UK EQUATOR Lightning Workshop 2020

Join this free one-hour practical, interactive workshop from the UK EQUATOR Centre. In our Lightning Workshops series, our methodology, writing, and communication experts cover all of the essential aspects of writing and publishing your academic research. These sessions are designed for early-career biomedical and clinical researchers.

What do you and your co-authors need to decide before you start to write? We will help you refine your message, define your target audience and choose an appropriate journal to ensure a smooth publication process. We’ll talk about different kinds of publications, how to spot a predatory journal, and thinking beyond journal impact factor. You’ll have a chance to apply the concepts to your own research.
