Writing and Reviewing Scientific Abstracts: a field epidemiology focus
This online course aimed to help public health professionals strengthen their skills in writing, reviewing and editing scientific abstracts.
The course addressed general principles of writing and reviewing abstracts with a field epidemiology focus, such as outbreak investigations. Training methods included online lectures, exercises and participation to Forum discussions. Participants could decide on the distribution of time they wish to invest in the course. However, there were common deadlines for submission of assignments. Submitting these assignments was essential for participating to the next stages of the course. All assignments were peer-reviewed only and provided clear instructions to perform those reviews.
