Scientific Writing and Publishing Workshop: Bringing Together Authors and Editors
Date: December 7, 2013, Location: Valley Hall
The objectives of this workshop are:
- To provide an interactive, guided approach to writing a clear and compelling scientific manuscript for publication in a peer-reviewed journal
- To facilitate discussion between authors and editors on best practices in manuscript preparation, submission, peer review, and publication ethics
Graduate students, residents, postdocs, and early-career faculty from all departments in the School of Veterinary Medicine will benefit from the collective experience of faculty journal editors from both clinical and basic sciences in the SVM. Senior faculty will gain an effective approach to mentoring.

You are welcome to register for one or more workshops, each emphasizing different sets of NCBI resources. All workshops are taught by NCBI staff and will consist of 1.5 hours of instruction followed by a Q & A period.
The workshops will use specific examples to highlight important features of the resources and tools under study and to demonstrate how to accomplish common tasks. Electronic copies of detailed handouts for each session will provide step-by-step instructions and additional information about each example.
Due to the US Government sequester, the workshop instructor will not be able to present in person at UC Davis, as in previous years. Instead, you are invited to attend all sessions via webinar, using your own computer or perhaps collaborating with your department or research group to view together.
