Workshop 1

Professor Ruth Malone will be presenting “How to Get your Paper Published: An Editor’s View”

Whether you are a researcher, a tobacco control practitioner, or an advocate, publishing your work helps ensure that what you do reaches a larger audience. But navigating the thicket to publication in a top journal can seem daunting. In this workshop, Tobacco Control’s editor-in-chief Professor Ruth Malone gives you the inside scoop on how to plan publications, pick target journals, position your work, make submitting decisions, and respond to peer reviews. She will also discuss how to avoid making “kiss of death” mistakes and how to manage rejections. Bring your questions!

Workshop 2

Associate Professor Natalie Walker will be presenting “Clinical trials: problem solving and the place of innovation” with a team of international leaders in clinical trials in nicotine and tobacco research (Professor Chris Bullen, Professor Hayden McRobbie, Professor Eric Donny, & Professor Billie Bonevski)


Clinical trial methodology can be used to evaluate a wide range of interventions, from the effects of novel behavioural and pharmacological therapies for smoking cessation to the impact of non-medical products and/or novel product standards on tobacco use. The design and conduct of clinical trials is a complex but rewarding field of research, and one that brings its own unique set of challenges. Different hypotheses require different approaches and tools, especially for trials that aim to predict real-world effectiveness. New innovations in the field are increasingly being utilised to help ensure trials are delivered to a high standard.
The workshop will build on the fundamental principles of trial design and conduct, with the aim that attendees will come away with a deeper understanding of the issues faced in the field, and how novel strategies and emerging innovations can help ensure research aligns with best practice. The workshop will use a ’world cafe’ style of interaction, whereby participants move around different ‘topic tables’ sharing their own experiences, learning from others, and brainstorming solutions. Associate Professor Natalie Walker will open the workshop by setting the scene for the discussion. Table conversations will be guided by the listed presenters (who are all experienced in the conduct of large complex clinical trials in the field), along with a number of topic experts. Topics of discussion will include: participant recruitment and retention; novel interventions and trial designs; outcome measures and analysis; ethical considerations; and data quality. At the end of the session, Professor McRobbie will lead a group discussion on the collective learnings from the workshop.
