One of the courses in most demand from the training provided by this institution, How to write a scientific article, retorns to Chile in January 2019, celebrating two editions. The first will take place on 14 and 15 January in Concepción, in collaboration with Universidad de Concepción-Chile, and the second in Santiago de Chile, on 17 and 18 January, in collaboration with Facultad de Medicina Clínica Alemana Universidad del Desarrollo.
Two lecturers will travel to Mexico D.F. to offer two work sessions on the basic techniques and skills to correctly write articles for scientific journals. Esteve Fernández, director of the Tobacco Control unit of the Institut Català d’Oncologia and president of the Spanish Association of Epidemiology, was editor of the journal Gaceta Sanitaria for ten years.
The training seminar on How to write a scientific article started in 2003 with the aim of helping health science professionals to write and publish scientific articles, through participative dynamics and the combination of theoretical-practical presentations and exercises based on articles already published. “Writing” is still a nightmare for many researchers when conveying the results of their work. The development of writing skills for scientific articles is usually deferred to a type of informal and implicit learning in daily work.
