    Session Agenda

    Medical researchers often wonder whether their studies have been conducted, described and reported in accordance with best practices and ethical standards in medicine. With acceptance rates for medical journals ranging from as low as 5 to 25%, researchers need to ensure that they report findings that are accurate, reproducible, unbiased, and reliable.  To encourage high-quality writing and reporting, several medical and allied sciences journals recommend the use of ICMJE guidelines. These guidelines provide useful insights to improve the quality, timeliness, completeness, and transparency of medical manuscripts. Enago’s next webinar will focus on providing effective tips for preparing an impressive medical manuscript in line with the ICMJE recommendations (Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals). It will focus on assisting researchers to decode the ICMJE guidelines and key ethical issues that authors must consider before submitting a manuscript to highly-cited, top-notch medical journals.

    Through this session, researchers will have an improved understanding of the following:

    • Importance of international guidelines and recommendations
    • Introduction to international guidelines for medical writing – ICMJE, WAME, COPE, EQUATOR Network
    • ICMJE rules for manuscript preparation and submission
    • ICMJE recommendations for authorship
    • Publication ethics by ICJME

    What people have said about previous webinars

    I attended their see the future conference which was 2 day event. They had reputed speakers from the academic sector and a nobel laureate as their speakers who had a lot of valuable information to share. I thank Enago for the opportunity to attend.

    Dr. Paul Lavender

    Working with Enago is a pleasure from start to finish. The webinar was prepared with plenty of notice, well publicized, ran perfectly, and clear participant feedback was provided shortly afterwards. What more can you ask for?

    Dr. Tomas berdych

    Firstly, I regularly attend Enago’s webinars as they are very engaging. I find a lot of things in presented in their webinars to be very practical and useful in my research journey. They could also customize a webinar series for the university I teach. The webinars are helpful to the students in publishing better.

    Prof. Abdul Haaris

    The webinar that I attended on plagiarism and ethics was in depth and at the same time to the point. I got to learn a lot from these webinar and got my question answered. Thanks for this!
