Much of health research is wasted due to lack of proper planning, implementation or publication of it. Over the past 25 years the British Medical Journal (BMJ) has witnessed the challenges that researchers face. Courses and tips for the production of medical research articles abound in the market, but the fundamental scientific and ethical requirements for successful publishing are not known to many authors. There is a need for clear answers to questions such as: Why do medical journals reject clinical trials that were not pre-registered? How can doctoral theses be transformed into scientific articles that high-impact international journals will want to publish? What is the best magazine to publish my article? Should I care about Open Access?
The NOVA-BMJ program "Research to Publication" brings together scientific content from the senior editors of BMJ and NOVA Medical School in a program of two training components: 48 e-learning modules, organized in 6 topics for a total of 200 hours of online training and a face-to-face event at NOVA Medical School in September 2017. The program has 10 ECTS accreditation by NOVA Medical School - Universidade Nova de Lisboa and also benefits from a 50% reduction in the publication fee at the BMJ Open to articles Accepted for publication.
