Publications are one of the metrics used to determine whether or not a grant proposal is worthy of support by reviewers. This will be particularly true at NIH as greater emphasis is put in coming years on the quality and positive impact of a grant-applicant’s publications. The implications of this change are already covered in the NIH version of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook.
Most junior faculty members, post-doctoral research fellows, and graduate students receive little formal training on how to present/publish the results of their work. Included in this comprehensive one-day seminar is everything from practical tips on composing the manuscript, through choosing the appropriate journal and understanding its review process, to strategies that are related to revision and resubmission. Participants learn what the most efficient approach is for producing publishable data; how to decide who will be included as authors, and in what order; how to write with maximal clarity and precision; how to avoid giving the perception of conflict of interest; and much, much more!
All participants receive an extensive handout, as well as a copy of Writing for Biomedical Publication – A Publication Guide for Biomedical Scientists.
