The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host a biomedical publications seminar for WSU faculty, post-docs, and space permitting, advanced doctoral students. A Biomedical Publications Seminar will take place Friday, April 3, 2015, 8:30AM to 5PM at Margherio Conference Center, Mazurek Education Commons at Scott Hall on the medical campus. OVPR is sponsoring a major portion of the cost to bring Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops to campus. Cost for attendees is $75 and may be paid by department index account transfer or personal check. Payment or index information must be received prior to the seminar to reserve your spot. Most junior faculty members, post-doctoral research fellows, and graduate students receive little formal training on how to publish / present the results of their work. Included in this comprehensive seminar is everything from practical tips on composing the manuscript, through choosing the appropriate journal and understanding its review process, to strategies that are related to revision and resubmission. Participants will learn: What the most efficient approach is for producing publishable data How to decide who will be included as authors, and in what order How to write with maximal clarity and precision How to avoid giving the perception of conflict of interest And much more!

Faculty, staff and students are invited to a hands-on demonstration to learn how to join and use COS Pivot and WSU ResearchConnect. Wayne State University subscribes to COS Pivot, the single most comprehensive source of funding information available. Whether your work is in the sciences or the arts, COS Pivot services can help support and advance your research. Much more efficient than Googling, the database is an aggregation of funding information that is verified for accuracy, updated for currency and formatted for quick, targeted searching. COS Pivot is available to all current WSU faculty, staff and students.

Explore the profiles, publications, and grant data of hundreds of researchers within our university. Follow the network and collaborations within WSU, throughout the SciVal Experts Community, and across the national DIRECT and VIVO networks. The publications and grants listed for faculty members reflect their expertise in the unit(s) with which they are affiliated here at WSU or at prior institutions and offer a snapshot of their knowledge and interests. This training seminar will take place Tuesday, April 14, 10-11:30 a.m., in the Undergraduate Library, Computer Lab A. This event is free, but space is limited, and registration is required!
