Tips and Guidance for Academic Writing
The publishing environment today is unrecognisable from that of only a few decades ago. Getting your research published, and published where it matters to you, your peers, and your organisation, requires skills and knowledge that the academics of the last century could never have foreseen.
Lancet Global Health Editor-in-Chief Zoë Mullan will guide you through the fog with insider tips and strategies from one of the world’s leading health journals.
The following topics will be covered:
• What do editors of top journals look for in a paper?
• Developing research questions
• Basic paper structure
• Predatory journals
There will also be extensive opportunities for questions and advice on any other topics of concern to participants.
Presenter: Zoë Mullan is editor of The Lancet Global Health. She joined The Lancet in 1999 and became Editor of The Lancet Global Health in 2013.
Moderator: Keith Martin, MD, PC is a physician and the founding Executive Director of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) based in Washington, DC.
