Webinar series by BioMed Central and Health Systems Global

Publishing is an important part of sharing the outcomes of research, but the publication process and requirements may sometimes feel like a closed book. Health Systems Global (HSG) and BioMed Central, publisher of BMC Health Services Research which is affiliated with HSG, have partnered to deliver a series of five webinars to open up the peer review and publication processes. Aimed at researchers at a variety of career stages, the series covers how to prepare an article and choose the right journal, what happens during peer review, publishing models and open access, research and publication ethics and how to be a peer reviewer.
