Workshops can provide some of the most informative and useful learnings throughout a conference, or at least that has been my experience so far. The opportunity to discuss and debate ideas in a small group on a well-defined topic is a recipe for success.
At this year’s Australian Conference of Science and Medicine in Sport, my PhD Supervisor Paul Gastin (@paulgastin) and I attended the “Publishing Your Work” workshop. The workshop was jointly-facilitated by Greg Kolt (University of Western Sydney), Kim Bennell (University of Melbourne), Evert Verhagen (Vrije Universiteit Medical Center Amsterdam), and Gordon Waddington (University of Canberra), all of whom have editorial involvement with prominent sports science and sports medicine journals such as the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport. I took away some great insights from the session which I am pleased to share here (in sketchnote form, naturally), with permission from the workshop facilitators:
