Writing a journal article:

Welcome to our course on Writing a journal article. The purpose of this fact sheet is to answer any questions you might have about the course.

Do I need to bring anything with me?

The most important thing to bring is an idea for a journal article. Ideally you should have collected and analysed the data. During the course you will be working this idea up into an article.

What will the course cover?

The course goes through the process of writing a scientific paper in 10 easy stages.

Is this the right course for me?

This course is for anyone who is writing - or about to write – an article for a peer reviewed journal. It is particularly suitable for those who feel intimidated by those who already have their names on the databases. It is about the writing process and is not a course on technical editing or critical appraisal.

What is the format of the course?

Our virtual courses have been designed for small groups. They are run informally, with plenty of time for discussion and practical work. The course is divided up into eight sessions, each lasting around 90 minutes, run over four days.

Whom should I contact if I have any queries?

If your query is about course logistics, please contact your course organiser. If you have a query about the course content, contact Mark

Pickin: mark.pickin@doctors.org.uk

What should I bring with me?

You must bring with you the idea for a journal article. During the course you will have the opportunity to develop and work on this idea.
