JPGM WRITECON 2007: A conference on medical writing
30th and 31st March, 2007, Mumbai, India

Writing and publishing are the heart and soul of research. For the benefit of the society at large information gathered from a study should be made available and accessible to it. Dissemination of research work is imperative for it to become knowledge. “Publication and dissemination of the results of national research and development activities help in strengthening and expanding national scientific and technological capacity and capability” [Ninth International Conference of Science Editors].

Writing is the first step in this process of transition of information [A collection of facts or data] to knowledge [The state or fact of knowing]. A well written piece unfolding a research work is readily accepted for publication and appreciated and grasped by the peers. To effectively build these capacities, it will be necessary to enhance the training of medical students and scientists at all levels. Though research methodology is part of some of the curricula most medical schools do not train the future medical scientists on how to present their work in the most apt manner. Even more importantly, no course discusses the importance of writing, the importance of data which is being collected in every clinic and hospital.

JPGM WriteCon 2007, will focus on the issues related to writing and publication of a research paper such as basic structure of a paper to copyright issues authors should know. The faculty for the program has been drawn from renowned editors of medical journals from India and abroad.
