Good Practice in Research: Authorship & Publication new Mon 24 Feb 2020   13:00 [Standby]

Have you ever faced any issues related to authorship within your research group or making a submission to a journal?

  • Who gets to be an author?
  • How do you start a conversation on authorship with your research team?
  • What approaches can be used to resolve an authorship problem?
  • How are mistakes handled in a published paper?
  • In what circumstances will a paper be retracted from a journal?

Using case studies and group discussion, this course will explore best practice from how authorship of a paper is decided to managing the challenges that can arise when working with publishers or editors. Discussions will include ‘grey areas’, common issues and pitfalls, and you will be given the opportunity to share your experiences and perspectives.

People love stories. They entertain, they help us to remember. This short interactive session is aimed at researchers looking to improve the effectiveness of their communication. It will introduce the importance of working out who your audience is and what they want to know. It will also explore how storytelling is as relevant to research communication as it is to fairy tales. We all have to communicate our research and ideas, why not do it through stories?

The session will be delivered by the Academic Director for STEM, Institute of Continuing Education.
