Session Agenda

We are glad to announce that Enago in collaboration with Medizinische Universität Innsbruck will be conducting an informative online session assisting research scholars at different career-stages in achieving publication success.

In today’s academic publishing landscape, high-quality publications are critical for establishing both the credibility of the study and researchers’ recognition amongst their peers. A critical aspect related to the recognition of a researcher is providing due credit for his contributions by assigning authorship or contributorship. Given that a research study involves multiple contributors, deciding authors and acknowledging contributors is one of the key challenges while writing a manuscript. Our first session will help researchers understand the recommended guidelines to be followed while listing authors and contributors along with the tips to overcome authorship dilemmas. Researchers will have a better understanding of the following:

  • ICMJE guidelines on authorship
  • How to differentiate an author from a contributor?
  • How to avoid ethical dilemmas about authorship decisions?
  • How long should the author list be?
  • Who can be the corresponding author or a co-author?
  • How to settle authorship disputes?
  • Resources for authors

The second session will aim to provide a detailed overview of the concept of Open Science and its important aspects like Open Access, Open Data, etc. In this increasingly complex and interconnected global scientific ecosystem, Open Science aims to make knowledge transparent and accessible using digital technologies, collaborative networks, and tools. The principles of openness must be applied to all the stages of the research cycle as a step forward to increase integrity, collaboration, and reproducibility in scholarly research. This session will highlight how researchers can contribute to Open Science by sharing all their research outputs, resources, methods, or tools openly and they will have a better understanding of the following:

  • Overview of “Open Knowledge” and its pros and cons
  • Awareness regarding open access publishing
  • The significance of open data sharing
  • Insights into open peer review and open licensing
  • Summary of open source and open education resources
  • Outline of open science movement

Who should attend this session?

  • Early-stage researchers
  • Doctoral students
  • Postdoctoral researchers
  • Established researchers
