The future of scientific publications after COVID-19
According to PubMed, one of the main platforms for the search of scientific publications in the field of health sciences, between February 1 and November 30, 2020, more than 80,000 works related to COVID-19 were published, in its vast majority, in scientific journals. Possibly never before has a specific public health problem caused scientific attention of similar dimensions, all over the world and in such a short time. Likewise, scientific journals have changed their editorial practices, and their leading role in the world of scientific communication has also been affected by the rapid dissemination of data, comments and criticism through social networks.
Ana María García, professor of preventive medicine and public health at the University of Valencia, and Esteve Fernández, director of the Tobacco Control Unit of the Institut Català d’Oncologia, present The future of scientific publications after COVID-19, an online session that took place on May 26, 2021 and in which they addressed the current situation and the possible futures of the scientific publishing world after the outbreak of the current pandemic.
The session also served to close the 11th edition of the online course How to write a scientific article, which both experts have been leading since its inception in 2016. Precisely to assess the need for this type of training, Fèlix Bosch, director of the Dr. Antoni Esteve, presented the foundations of the SCRIU-B study, which is currently being carried out among all the people who have participated in the course, either in face-to-face or online mode. Finally, the names of the two study participants who have been winners in the draw for an iPad were also announced: Maika González Espinosa, from Malaga, and Vallivana Rodrigo Casares, from Valencia.
Online reservations are not available for this event.
