Event details


Notwithstanding abundant guidance on literature reviews, particularly for protocol-driven literature reviews, getting them to publication requires attention to points that have been less covered.  

This seminar covers these points so that authors may be more successful when submitting manuscripts to academic outlets. It includes practical points, which are further demonstrated by an example.
