Ethiopia FELTP Scientific Writing Workshop

Ethiopia FELTP Scientific Writing Workshop

The Ethiopia Field Epidemiology Laboratory Training Program (E-FELTP) held a Trainer of Trainers (ToT), Scientific Writing Workshop from 10 – 21 December 2018 in Bishoftu, Ethiopia.

With financial, technical and logistical support from the United States Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) of the US Department of Defense and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US CDC) the training impacted 19 participants from eight Ethiopian universities, and the Human Resource Directorate, Federal Ministry of Health in Addis Ababa. These included Resident Advisors, Academic Coordinators, Programme Coordinators, and professors/lecturers.

 The training aimed to increase the use of country-wide and regional public health data and to disseminate relevant epidemiological findings in peer-reviewed journals. To achieve this the training sought to build the capacity of multi-disciplinary Ethiopia FELTP staff to provide scientific writing instruction and mentoring residents.

The main objectives of the training were;

1.    To understand appropriate formatting and stylistic guidelines applicable to scientific papers.

2.    To identify a suitable journal for each scientific paper and to follow the ‘Instructions to  Authors’ with regard to formatting and style.

3.    To apply tips and strategies for each section of a scientific paper.

4.    To use appropriate guidelines to check scientific papers for accuracy and completeness.

       5.    To submit a ready-to-review draft manuscript for supervisors/co-authors’ edits, comments and suggestions

 

Facilitated by Dorothy L Southern, the concept of a training was to prepare the participants and develop capacities of sharing scientific writing knowledge and skills with others in regards to enhancing both individual and organizational growth. During the workshop the facilitator guided on how to share specific knowledge and skills through varied methodologies.

The workshop introduced and explained the five steps of the ‘Think Before You Write’ approach, including: meaningful results through developments of a ‘framing’ document, the ‘high level outline’ (HLO), the ‘most common errors’, authorship responsibilities, and the ‘structured feedback’ process.

The workshop consisted formal lectures, with group and individual exercises sessions emphasizing the practical application of technical knowledge and skills to develop each section of the manuscript. At the end of each session participants had writing time to incorporate the new information and technical skills into their draft manuscript.
