This year’s workshop aims to enable selected health researchers on preparing scientific articles for peer-reviewed journals. All participants are required to submit their draft journal articles for pre-evaluation. Evaluated articles will be revised during the small-group workshop exercises under the guidance of the faculty and mentor-facilitators.
Workshop mentors are composed of medical research writing experts here and abroad as follows: Dr. Jose Florencio Fabella Lapeña, Jr., Publons UK’s Most Prolific Editor, Dr. Wilfred CG Peh, Secretary-General, Asia Pacific Association of Medical Journal Editor (APAME), and Dr. Cecilia Maramba-Lazarte, Editor-in-Chief, Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society of the Philippines Journal.
Three months after, participants are expected to publish their improved journal manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals and contribute to the dissemination of Filipino research information.
