Writing manuscript for journal publication

Date Thursday 25th May 2023 (Time to be confirmed)

The focus of this workshop is to assist young researchers/students in writing their first paper for international publication.

The workshop will cover topics including the structure of a scientific paper, selecting an appropriate journal, the ethics of authorship, and how to handle responses from journal editors. Depending on demand, there may be opportunities for young authors to have drafts of their manuscripts reviewed by experienced authors and to provide them with suggestions about paper structure and form, although detailed comments about a particular topic may not be possible.

Elements of Study Design

Date Thursday 25th May 2023 (Time to be confirmed)

In this workshop, we will teach participants how to design ecological studies. Ecological studies must be designed well to allow us to determine the impact of the ecological or anthropogenic predictors on the response variable with a certain level of confidence. This half-day course will discuss the fundamentals of designing an ecological or conservation science study. This will include aspects like replication and pseudoreplication, independence, interspersion, some standard study designs and the use of basic statistics in interpreting patterns in data.
