Expert Witness Webinar: The ABCs of Writing and Information Searching

On January 29, 2019, at 2:00pm (ET), The TASA Group, in conjunction with toxicologist/medical writer, Dr. Allison Muller, presented a $35, one-hour interactive webinar presentation, The ABCs of Writing and Information Searching, for all expert witnesses

There is certainly more to learn in the area of writing than in the span of an hour. But there are basic principles to lay the groundwork for writing and citing references well when putting together your expert report. This short lecture will focus on basic writing skills (ones you may have forgotten from the 5th grade!), the top 10 mistakes spellchecking software won’t catch, spell-check add ons (for those who want spellcheckers do some extra work), plagiarism (it’s not just a word-for-word offense), information searching (in common search engines and in databases like PubMed), how to critically evaluate references (and how to properly cite them),  and an overview of referencing software (for those who cite more than a couple of references and want to make moving around sentences as painless as possible).
