Scholarly Writing: Publishing Medical Education Research - 1/13/2025

Includes a Live Web Event on 01/13/2025 at 3:00 PM (EST)

In this session, the skills of scholarly writing will be explored through the lens of analyzing a manuscript that was accepted for publication. The participants will examine review criteria that are used by healthcare education journals and apply them to a sample manuscript. In discussing scholarly writing the participants will make a decision about the type of feedback they would give to the authors of the sample paper. 

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the components of a scholarly publication;
  2. Discuss how to frame a problem statement;
  3. Identify an effective Research Question;
  4. Discuss whether the Design/method is appropriate to the question;
  5. Discuss whether the authors have applied the best data collection methods to the appropriate sample;
  6. Understand the Results section and how to present results in a clear manner.

Recordings will be made available for viewing following the completion of each workshop. Viewing of recordings may not be substituted for participation in live workshops.

This workshop is a part of the MERC Virtual Workshop 2024 - Series 4.
