  • 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM
  • NIH Library Training Room

Learn how to write compelling and concise research papers, understand the publishing lifecycle, and become familiar with issues surrounding copyright and plagiarism. The NIH Library offers a variety of classes to enhance your knowledge about scholarly communication and increase your chances of being published.

Session Description

This class complements, How to Write a Research Paper Parts 1 & 2, as it will specifically cover key points to help you with writing the statistical portion of your manuscript. But, you do not need to have attended How to Write a Research Paper to benefit from this class. Recommendations will be discussed without going into the technical statistical details. At the end of the class, participants should have a good sense of what to do and not to do when writing up the statistical sections of your manuscript. Plenty of time will be devoted to questions from participants, and references will be provided for more in-depth self-study. This class will be taught by Dr. Paul Wakim, NIH Clinical Center, Biostatistics and Clinical Epidemiology Service (BCES).

After the class, Dr. Wakim will be available for 30 minutes for those who would like to discuss a specific problem or question related to a manuscript they are preparing.

Registration is required, please arrive on-time to guarantee a seat. If you cannot attend, please cancel your registration or let Alicia Livinski(link sends e-mail) know.
