Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile is delighted to host the 2015 U21 Health Sciences Doctoral Forum which will focus on the theme: ‘A paper is more than great results’.
We would like to invite doctoral students in health sciences disciplines, who are advanced in their studies, to present their work at the forum. We are initially limiting student applications to one in each U21 institution; however, depending on demand, we will consider increasing the number of students in particular institutions.
Students’ presentations will be 10 minutes maximum, followed by 5 minutes for questions and 5 minutes for feedback from an international review panel. Students will not be expected to give an overview of their whole project but rather to highlight some of the issues they have encountered to get published and how they have resolved the issues. The main aim of this forum is to discuss the publication of manuscripts with a particular emphasis on the three following points:
- Relevance of generating a manuscript
- Challenges encountered to get published
- How to choose a journal
Participating students will also have the opportunity to present a poster presenting their research that will be displayed in the coffee break and lunch area during the day of the forum.
Submissions of abstracts and any queries related to the 2015 Health Sciences Doctoral Forum should be directed to Dr Andrea Leiva.
Please circulate this communication to the relevant departments in your institutions and do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or comments.
