Reading, Writing, and Evaluating Scientific Literature

2 credits, Spring Semester

This course will teach biomedical informatics graduate students the practical skills needed to use scientific literature in their biomedical informatics research. At the beginning of the course, students will participate in interactive lessons about literature reviews, the peer review process, and evaluating scientific literature. Then, students will read, evaluate, and present papers to their peers in an informal journal club format and in a formal presentation. In the final weeks of the course, students will learn how to write their own scientific proposals and papers that build on existing scientific literature.
