In partnership with the NIH Clinical Center's Biostatistics and Clinical Epidemiology Service (BCES), the NIH Library is offering a class to assist researchers in writing a manuscript. Participants will become familiar with statistical issues that can arise as well as recommendations to prevent them. At the end of the class, participants should have a good sense of what to do and not to do when writing the statistical sections of a manuscript. Most of the examples will be related to clinical research; however, anyone can benefit from the tips shared. Plenty of time will be devoted for questions, and references will be provided for more in-depth self-study.
This class complements, How to Write a Research Paper Parts 1 & 2, as it specifically covers key points in writing the statistical portion of a manuscript – particularly for clinical research. Attendance to How to Write a Research Paper is not required to benefit from this class.
