These skills tend to be learned on the job, which can make it difficult for researchers to achieve best practices. The resources below have been developed to help support biomedical researchers in staying current on publication best practices.

In August 2020, our Centre launched a suite of practical e-learning modules on topics related to journalology, including open access publishing, preprints, data sharing, study registration, and use of reporting guidelines. These modules are now open to all members of OHRI including Scientists, Investigators, Research Coordinators, Postdoctoral Fellows, and Trainees. Registration is free.
