Prof Domhnall MacAuley: “Academics, scientists and the future of medical publishing”
16th October 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
University of Ulster; Consultant-Associate Editor, Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) and PLOS Medicine
Friday 16 October 2015, 13:00-14:00
Large Seminar Room, 1st Floor, Institute of Public Health, University Forvie Site, Robinson Way, Cambridge
What happened to scholarship in medicine, has science disappeared, and where is the intellectual discipline of questioning, hypothesis testing and experimentation? And, in parallel, what has happened to the library, the research paper, and academic dialogue? This will not be a polished powerpoint tour de force but a bumpy ride through the potholes of our discipline and a critical look at the way we communicate. And, hopefully, not too prim. Yes, I will tell you the secrets of publication and how to make your paper appeal to an editor but, I hope to leave you with more questions than answers, thinking differently about how you present your research and trying to anticipate future developments in medical communication.
This talk will be introduced by Dr Greg Irving, Clinical Lecturer, General Practice Research Group, Primary Care Unit, Cambridge.
Part of the Bradford Hill seminar programme at the Cambridge Institute of Public Health.
