Scientific writing and publication course at the National Institute for Occupational Health

The culmination of the research process is a scientific publication. It is essential to publish the findings of your research so that your colleagues can benefit from the new knowledge that you have gained from your study. Just as we have to learn skills to function effectively in our professions, we have to learn how to write and publish in order to effectively communicate our findings to our fellow professionals. On 15 and 16 March 2017, Prof. Jim Phillips from the National Institute for Occupational Health (NIOH) conducted two courses on scientific writing and publication. They were attended by young scientists from the NIOH, University of Johannesburg and University of the Witwatersrand. The feedback from the course was excellent and those who attended the course will be invited to attend writing sessions at the NIOH. At these sessions, the young scientists will be encouraged to write up their research, with senior researchers in attendance to assist with the writing process.The NIOH is planning to host the course later in the year for occupational healthcare professionals who wish to hone their scientific writing skills and learn about the publication process. If you are interested in attending the course, please contact the Editor-in-Chief of Occupational Health Southern Africa, Prof. Gill Nelson, e-mail: gill.nelson@wits.ac.za
