Research Ready offers training to non-scientists on how to read and critique peer-reviewed science research, with a special focus on medical science literature.
Our one-day workshops are given in non-technical lay language, with negligible math content. Our clients come from many walks of life, including government, business, and journalism. No background in science, medicine, statistics or mathematics is required.
- Our workshops cover the following topics:
- The various types of scientific studies and publications
- Basic research study designs, their strengths and weaknesses
- What is a “p-value” and “statistical significance”?
- Simple steps for critically appraising the qualities of a scientific study
At present, our workshops are offered only in English.
