AMDA's 2019 Annual Conference

FR16 - Workshop: How to Read and Review Research Papers

Mar 8, 2019 1:30pm ‐ Mar 8, 2019 3:00pm


This session will provide participants with a hands-on opportunity to learn how to critically write, read, and review scientific literature. Participants will work in small groups facilitated by the editors and editorial board members of JAMDA – the Journal of the Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine. Each small group will receive, review, and critique a paper that has been submitted to the journal (with author permission and blinding). Short presentations and handouts will be provided regarding principles of good scientific writing, and how to efficiently develop a thorough, helpful article review. Current and past AMDA Futures participants, junior faculty, and fellows who are interested in writing or reviewing for JAMDA are encouraged to attend, as are those who are willing to contribute their expertise in service of JAMDA.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Efficiently review a research article.
  • Discuss the principles for writing a publishable research paper.
  • Differentiate different types of research articles.
  • Explain how to submit and review papers for JAMDA.
