AMEE 2014 Symposium Where is the line between sloppy and scientifically irresponsible?: A discussion to promote excellence in medical education research
These are the notes Janneke Frambach made during AMEE 2014 Symposium 3A. The notes were written on stage during the symposium and were not edited afterwards.
AMEE 2014 workshop The BMJ or Instructional Science: how to get your papers published in different types of journals? Here you find the workshop materials that Janneke Frambach and I use in our AMEE 2014 workshop The BMJ or Instructional Science: how to get your papers published in different types of journals? Background As a (young) researcher it is wise to think about your publication strategy: what kind of journals are you opting to publish your papers? The journal with the highest impact factor? Or the journal that is read most by the teachers and policy makers? Or the journal in which the theory you just modified with your study is discussed widely? And what will be the effect of your publication strategy for your scientific career? In this workshop we will discuss four articles on the same topic published in four different types of journals. We will look at writing style, structure, the composition of the introduction and discussion sections of the papers? Next to the technical aspects, we will also discuss the ethical side of publishing in different types of journals: how far are you prepared to go to get your paper published in that high impact journal? For example: to what extent will you follow up requirements of the editors for modification of your paper?
