Background: There is tremendous discrepancy between the clinical experience in China and its ability to relate that experience to the rest of the scientific world via peer reviewed manuscripts in the English speaking world. One of the areas in which that gulf is most evident is in hepatobiliary and pancreatic disease. The incidence of hepatic disease is significantly higher in China than in any Western country secondary to its high prevalence of Hepatitis B. This leads to advanced liver disease as well as the development of hepatocellular carcinoma. There is a significant amount of basic and clinical research and education surrounding this area, but because of a lack of sophistication in writing these efforts are not recognized. Several faculty members within the University of Chicago Department of Surgery and Peking Union Medical College play key editorial roles at major American and international GI/hepatobiliary journals.

Purpose of Conference:

The field of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Disease will be utilized to develop critical manuscript evaluation and writing skills.

Structure of Conference:

The conference will be a two-day symposium. The first day will focus on the field of hepatobiliary and pancreatic disease highlighting basic and clinical research. The second day will focus on evaluating these topics in a manner that optimizes potential publication. The 2nd day will highlight the editors and reviewers from leading English journals that focus on liver and pancreatic disease – Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery, Hepatobiliary Surgery and Nutrition, American Journal of Surgery, American Journal of Transplantation and the like. Topics of the Writers Workshop will include general advice for scientific writing, how to write an abstract, tips for what makes for a well-written manuscript, plagiarism/duplicate publication and other forms of misconduct and how to respond to critiques.
