From Project to Publication — the Art of Manuscript Revision
Wednesdays, June 3, 2020 - June 24, 2020
2 p.m. – 3 p.m.

Despite an ever-escalating emphasis on publication, not many academics receive formal training in how to craft and revise our academic writing. From Project to Publication lays out an array of practices and frameworks that support academic writers in transforming a manuscript-in-process into a submitted article. Across the weeks, participants will be guided through distinct stages of the revision process – from deepening an argument, to clarifying an under-represented perspective, to integrating feedback without losing sight of personal investments.
Provided by the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity. UF has an institutional membership, which gives you access to a free membership. To activate it, please click here: National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity<https://cdo.ufl.edu/find-resources/ncfdd/>

Learn This One Weird Trick to Share and Publish Research Work [That Isn't a Paper]
Wednesday, June 24, 2020
1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

It can take a long time for research to be published as a peer-reviewed publication, which can be a burden for early career researchers (ECRs) when they apply for fellowships, grants, and jobs. This workshop will survey various tools and platforms that enable researchers to share and publish interim products, such as data, code, protocols, posters, etc.; to solicit feedback, demonstrate accomplishments, and get cited for work that isn't a peer-reviewed publication. (Both NSF and NIH accept interim products in grant applications and reports, provided they are citable.)

Improving the Rigor & Reproducibility of Animal Research Using ARRIVE
Thursday, June 25, 2020
1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

Transparent and complete reporting is a cornerstone of reproducible research. However, animal research is often reported poorly, and investigators and organizations responsible for research integrity seem to be insufficiently aware of the consequences of poor reporting. The ARRIVE reporting guidelines, first released in 2010, are a checklist of the minimal essential information required to allow independent appraisal of research for reproducibility, relevance, and conformity with best scientific practice. Guideline items can also enable investigators to identify and incorporate best practice procedures into their research before experiments begin. This comprehensive set of recommendations enables investigators to adhere to standards identified by NIH for reproducible research.

Resource Spotlight: University Writing Program Writer’s Studio
The new Writing Studio is committed to helping University of Florida students and faculty meet their academic and professional goals by becoming better writers. We support independent learning and encourage scholarship by providing one-on-one consultations, workshops tailored to specific classes (graduate and undergraduate), and faculty retreats focusing on publishing original research.
One-on-one tutorials: The Writing Studio is a free service for current UF graduate and undergraduate students. Students have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a consultant on issues specific to their own particular development. Because our aim is to help students become more effective writers, we do not simply proofread or edit documents. We can, however, assist students to become better proofreaders and editors of their own work.
