Scientific Communication Seminars

Goals of the series: This series seeks to teach trainees how to develop a peer reviewed scientific manuscript, through the review of elements of style, authorship, and extent of information that needs to be incorporated into a scientific research paper. Trainees will learn how to develop the elements that go into a successful scientific manuscript. Sessions include insights from Editor's of journals and Peer Reviewer's of manuscripts. Sessions include how to write a successful rebuttal to respond to reviewers' concerns and how to write a peer review. This series provides instruction on how to write a successful abstract for a conference, how to put together and present a poster presentation, and how to communicate your research findings to non-scientific audiences.

Who should attend? This is open to all trainees interested in honing their writing skills including undergraduates, graduate students, medical students, post-doctoral fellows, residents, or faculty members at any rank. You can register for one, some, or all educational sessions. After registration, if you need to withdraw please email: bootcamp@umassmed.edu
