Live and work in China not as important because people can read your affiliation anyway

Hi Joe, Can you share the slides afterward?
Weiming Tang
44:30
We will achieve them into our SESH website
Anna Fan
45:29
Yes, we can share the slides afterwards and archive them in our website.
Suzanne Day
46:35
For the 2 hours: it can help to literally block this time on your calendar, like a meeting (a meeting with your paper!)
Weiming Tang
47:36
Many great ideas can be generated from the trips
Suzanne Day
51:25
There's a home for every paper - just got to find it! :)
Khaoula Bessame
53:37
Is Zotero okay?
Weiming Tang
54:23
Better to have the working group to use the same reference manager
Khaoula Bessame
54:35
OK, thanks Joe!
Naomi Miall
56:41
Perhaps the darker lighter shading is a bit confusing - doesn’t relate to the table contents
Takhona Hlatshwako
56:45
N(%) in one column?
Suzanne Day
56:51
One column with N(%)
Khaoula Bessame
56:52
the color coding doesn’t make sense
GIFTY - NMU
56:59
Total sample size
Khaoula Bessame
57:12
improve alignment
Suzanne Day
57:26
like all in one
Suzanne Day
57:27
yeah
Rayner Kay Jin Tan (he/him)
57:46
descending 'n' for participant identity instead of alphabetical order
Weiming Tang
57:47
Hard to differentiate variable name and categories
Rayner Kay Jin Tan (he/him)
58:04
1 decimal place for % - but depends on style
Priyanka
58:16
Title of the Table can be improved stating that its the characteristics of the applicants
Eneyi Kpokiri
58:18
Sections could be distinct e.g Merge rows for headings
Weiming Tang
58:28
May need a note for research experience in LMICs
Suzanne Day
01:00:20
need ages for categories of child/elder
Weiming Tang
01:00:31
Remove total one
Shania Pande
01:00:32
the percentages could be placed a bit higher up as some overlap with the error bars
Xumeng Yan
01:00:33
For each column, add (N=?)
Priyanka
01:00:44
X-axis title
Khaoula Bessame
01:00:48
x axis needs to be labeled
Rayner Kay Jin Tan (he/him)
01:00:51
Explaining what control / free / PIF are - figures should be self-explanatory?
Weiming Tang
01:01:29
is the dark bar confidence interval?
Priyanka
01:03:00
2-hr rule!
Khaoula Bessame
01:03:01
fgures and tables need to stand on their own
GIFTY - NMU
01:03:02
2hours rule
Susan
01:03:02
2hrs rule
Suzanne Day
01:03:04
early registration of reviews! Haven't done that before!
Rayner Kay Jin Tan (he/him)
01:03:06
decide if I"m a morning or night owl
yuxin
01:03:16
New ideas will be generated from trips!
Weiming Tang
01:03:28
make an appointment with ourselves
Tong Wang
01:03:29
2 hours rule

I have a question regarding referencing - what’s the best way to avoid plagiarism and keep track of sources?
Suzanne Day
01:07:33
My big tip for that: always always always make notes on sources in your own words - avoid direct quotes as you might not remember!
Anna Fan
01:07:56
10 June (Thurs) 8am ET /1pm UK / 8pm ChinaWork-in-progress Presenter: YuxinNi, Ying Lu,Robert Feng
Khaoula Bessame
01:08:16
One more question if that’s OK Joe, for those of us doing 2ry data analyses, do you recommend we dedicate the first few weeks to the quant part, finalising infographics and tables, and then start writing?
Khaoula Bessame
01:08:24
Thanks Suzanne and Joe for the tips!
Weiming Tang
01:09:07
We usually start from methods, results, discussion, then intro
Weiming Tang
01:09:21
For results, better to have all the results ready first
Suzanne Day
01:09:47
background and methods can be written without any data yet! ;) can start it super early
Khaoula Bessame
01:09:59
Thanks Weiming, Joe, and Suzanne - super helpful!
Weiming Tang
01:10:33
Let writing your daily life!!!
