EWSSa - Preparing manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals: Strategies and writing skills
Date: 06.07.2016, Time: 10:00 - 12:30, Room: 0.31 & 0.32
The workshop will be lead by Dr. Xavier Sanchez from University of Cumbria, UK. It will provide the delegates with an overview of the publication process for early–career researchers, and guidelines and tips on how to get (doctoral) research published. To that end, we will (a) discuss some of the typical problems early–career researchers face when preparing manuscripts to submit for publication, and (b) practice and discuss how to submit the best possible abstract as an example of how to submit best manuscripts for publication.
EWSSb - Mixed Modeling: Learning to Love the Standard Deviation
Date: 06.07.2016, Time: 9:00 - 12:30, Room: L7
This workshop will be presented by Will Hopkins, professor of research design and statistics at Victoria University of Melbourne and a fellow of ECSS. Professor Hopkins will explain how mixed models are just the usual fixed-effect models with the addition of random effects that are summarized as between-subject and within-subject standard deviations representing individual differences, individual responses, and various errors. He will then explain how to run mixed models in SAS, SPSS and R to analyze data from controlled trials and other designs with repeated measurement or clustering.
