About this event

  • Date and time Thu 25 Feb 2021 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Psychiatry

This webinar will allow participants to understand the challenges and pressures facing researchers and scientific journals in a fast-paced and ever-changing field. 

The science and research fields are driven by a need to publish findings quickly and in prestigious journals. This pressure to publish can risk bad and even fraudulent data. This webinar will be a conversation with the editor-in-chief of one of the leading journals in psychiatry about his experiences of this, and how he aims to tackle this moving forward.

During this webinar delegates will:

  • Understand the pressure on researchers to publish their work in high profile journals, and the challenge on reviewers scrutinizing this.
  • Learn about some broader high profile cases of academic malpractice, and specific issues faced by the British Journal Psychiatry.
  • Learn how scientific journals are trying to be more robust in ensuring published research is reliable and valid.

This is the fifth of a series of Mind Matters webinars presented by the RSM Psychiatry section.
