Our Lab Research Publication School is here to help you write research articles that are fit for purpose.


We are delighted to be able to bring you this online Lab Research Publication School developed in collaboration with the UK EQUATOR (Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research) centre.


Lab research publication school 23rd-26th September 2024

Who should attend?

The Lab Research Publication School is designed for life science researchers at any stage of their career plus others who are actively involved in reporting or communicating in vivo or in vitro studies using animal, cell line or human-derived material.


We believe that well written research articles that are fit for purpose do not just happen.

It requires planning to:

  • refine your message and identify your audience. We will cover an introduction to publishing, negotiating authorship and acknowledgement, plus planning your message and audience.
  • select the right journal and develop good writing habits. We will cover choosing a journal and avoiding predators, reporting guidelines (including ARRIVE 2.0 & RIVER) plus good writing styles and habits.
  • ensure the right information is written in the right section of a research article. We will cover how to overcome the blank page, summarising your article in an effective title and abstract, plus give an overview of what to write where and share tips for successful introduction, methods, results and discussion sections.
  • manage the submission and peer review process. We will cover revising and editing for simplicity, clarity and completeness, the submission process, cover letters and dealing with peer review.


Having completed this Lab Research Publication School individuals will be able to:

  • select journals appropriate for their audience and message.
  • identify and use relevant reporting guidelines.
  • negotiate authorship and acknowledgements.
  • draft and revise all sections of a manuscript.
  • manage the submission and peer review process.
  • deliver research conducted and reported in accordance with contemporary best practice.
