In the latest session in the EQUATOR Lightning Workshops series, you'll practice dealing with peer reviewers comments, from the kind, to the fair, to the seriously challenging.


This workshop will be led by revered and feared methods reviewer for the BMJ “hanging committee”, Prof Gary Collins. What Gary doesn’t know about spotting fatal flaws in statistical analysis and reporting isn’t worth knowing.


This free workshop is open to University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes staff and students, but we do request that you book a spot.
