Writing and publishing are key activities of staff at NIH and HHS. We have developed a series of classes to serve as a refresher for experienced authors and as an easy introduction for those new to the process. Classes cover a variety of topics from providing guidance on writing your abstract to reviewing the components of a research paper, the peer review process, and how to respond back to journal reviewers, to creating pleasing conference posters to understanding copyright and fair use and writing in an ethical manner.

Session Description

Learn how to avoid copyright infringement and plagiarism when writing about your research or making a conference presentation. In this webinar, for NIH and HHS employees, we will cover “must know” information. This includes resources for determining copyright, how to obtain copyright permissions, and alternatives for use of graphics and data when licensing fees are not an option. In addition, an introduction of quick and easy guidelines for citing work that is not your own will help you keep your career on a positive trajectory.
