Workshops & Seminars

ORYX Solutions offers a series of seminars, workshops and webinars delivered by experts to help researchers of all levels develop powerful and effective communication skills.

Expert Instructors

All our training sessions are delivered by experts in scientific publication, presentation and communication – most have extensive experience of scientific publishing. The training editors bring their expertise, valuable insight and advice from working in the world’s most reputable science publishing houses.

Our approach to scientific communication training provides the expertise and years of experience that can only be expected from specialized professionals. It guarantees high satisfaction levels and quality outcomes for the participants.

Customized Delivery

Our collaborative approach ensures a bespoke service for your institute, based on its unique situation, requirements and goals. We always pay close attention to the particular needs of our clients and are able to tailor our services to meet your scale or budget. We offer three basic formats: 

Seminars

Designed for groups of more than 20 and delivered as a series of presentations or lectures on-site over a half a day usually by one expert instructor.

Workshops

Suitable for groups of up to 20 and delivered as interactive sessions over one to two days by one or more expert instructors where participants get to try out newly acquired skills in a live situation

Webinars

Short, scheduled, live, online sessions that highlight key aspects of scientific communication and publication. Participants can ask questions and download material to refer to afterwards. We also provide promotional support to help attract participants and all materials are available afterwards for the institute’s own use.

Scientific Writing

One of the top 10 reasons why papers get rejected is poor scientific writing.

How to write a scientific paper

Scientific papers are for sharing original research work with other scientists or for reviewing research conducted by others. As such, they are critical to the evolution of modern science, in which the work of one scientist builds upon that of others. To reach their goal, papers must aim to inform, not impress. They must be highly readable — that is, clear, accurate, and concise. They are more likely to be cited by other scientists if they are helpful rather than cryptic or self-centered.

This one-day workshop offers an opportunity for students, researchers, clinicians and those from pharmaceutical companies involved in writing research findings, to gain an understanding of how to develop and write a scientific paper.

 

How to get published

This 2-day workshop offers an opportunity for students, researchers, clinicians and those from pharmaceutical companies involved in writing research findings, to gain an in-depth understanding of scholarly publishing and how to develop, write and prepare a scientific paper for publication. The format consists of a mix of presentations, interactive discussions and ‘hands-on’ practice. This holistic approach ensures that participants learn how to write a scientific paper, how to select the right journal for submission, understand how the review process works and how to deal with all aspects of communication with the Editor(s) and peer-reviewers.

 

Poster Presentations

Formats: Workshop, Seminar or Webinar

Poster presentations may not seem as prestigious as oral presentations, but they are a great opportunity to interact with other scientists in the field in a structured and formal way. During the training participants learn how to create the poster, promote it, and then interact with visitors during the poster session.

 

Scientific Presentations

Formats: Workshop, Seminar or Webinar

Effective presentation is about getting your message across. Specifically, it involves capturing an audience’s attention, ensuring your audience understands the idea you are trying to convey, and encouraging your audience to do something with that information, such as remember it, apply it, or provide feedback. This essential-skills training focuses on presenting research findings in a way that is clear, insightful and memorable to the audience.

 

Panel Discussions

Formats: Workshop, Seminar

Panel discussions at conferences are a useful way to trigger an exchange of viewpoints among experts. Still, they are more difficult to prepare for than presentations, and more challenging to moderate than a regular conference session, too. This training provides the advanced skills necessary to facilitate lively and productive discussions among panelists and audience.

 

Chairing Scientific Sessions

Formats: Workshop, Seminar

An effective chairperson creates a sense of coherence, brings the speakers closer to the audience, ensures that everything runs smoothly, and wraps up the session in a way that leaves everyone feeling good about it. This level of effectiveness requires careful preparation. Core facilitation and interaction skills are covered during this training, which will equip participants with the tools and confidence to run memorable sessions.

 

Publishing Ethics

Formats: Seminar or Webinar

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer review in all its forms plays an important role in ensuring the integrity of the scholarly record. The process depends to a large extent on trust, and requires that everyone involved behave responsibly and ethically. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the Content and solutions providers and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.

 

Communication in Science

Formats: Seminar or Webinar

Communicating in science has a long history, from the Babylonian clay tablet to the medieval vellum codex, the printed scientific journal, to large online databases today. This seminar describes the evolution of scientific communication and how scientific and medical information is accessed and communicated nowadays.

Bibliometrics

Formats: Seminar or Webinar

Bibliometrics is a set of methods to quantitatively analyse scientific, medical and technical literature. Many research fields use bibliometric methods to explore the impact of their field, the impact of a set of researchers, or the impact of a particular paper. Bibliometrics are now used in quantitative research assessment exercises of academic output, which is starting to threaten practice-based research. The seminar will deal with the importance of bibliometrics to researchers and institutions, how researchers can use these metrics to help them decide where to publish and to track how research publications are being cited.
