Session Chair: Moyses Szklo, JHSPH
In this half-day workshop, participants will critically review a paper as initially submitted to the American Journal of Epidemiology, but not yet published. The paper will be sent to participants in advance of the workshop for their critical review. During the workshop, a presentation will be made regarding some of the main points to be considered when preparing or reviewing a manuscript. Small-group work will follow the presentation so that participants can compare their reviews and prepare a consolidated list of critical comments on the paper. Each group will designate a leader who will present the group’s review of the paper to the whole group of participants. At the end of the workshop, students will receive copies of the manuscript’s AjE reviews, the initial editorial decision, and the final accepted version of the paper.
