Writing an abstract: UK EQUATOR Centre Lightning Workshop
The EQUATOR Lightning Workshop series offers free academic writing and publication skills training for early-career biomedical and clinical researchers.

An article abstract needs to be an accurate well-structured summary and entice your readers to read further. As many readers only have access to the abstract, and it is often used by journal editors and scientific committees to decide whether to send the article for peer review, you need to get it spot on. We also talk about selecting key words to complement the language in your abstract and maximise the chance of readers finding your abstract.

Patricia Logullo is a scientific editor with a background in scientific journalism and evidence-based health. She has extensive experience helping biomedical researchers to communicate their findings and journals to publish health research articles. She conducts research into best practices, tools, and guidelines for scientific communication, in her role as website and research officer at the UK EQUATOR Centre in the Centre for Statistics in Medicine.

This free workshop is open to University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes staff and students, but we do ask you to book a spot. To hear about other EQUATOR courses in Oxford, please join our mailing list by sending a blank email to equator-oxford-subscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk.
