One-Way Analysis of Variance – Are you doing it the right way?

Led by Jose Manuel Azevedo and Ana Isabel Azevedo – CEOS.PP-ISCAP/P.PORTO

Statistics is an important field in mathematics with useful applications in research, which are often misunderstood and/or misused. One of the most common errors is the wrong choice of statistical test, depending not only on the size of the sample, but also to other assumptions that the test must observe in order to apply it. In this workshop we will analyse some of the more popular tests in research - ANOVA (analysis of variance) and post-hoc tests. We will look at the conditions that need to be met to apply it, and how to choose between parametric and non-parametric tests, etc. We will also demonstrate a free add-in for MS Excel which extends Excel's standard statistics capabilities by providing advanced worksheet functions and data analysis tools. These functions provide some of the functionality a SPSS, but in Excel.

This workshop is aimed at researchers and others who have little or no prior knowledge about using ANOVA analysis tools, and it will be particularly useful to those who want help in choosing the right test according to the data and research question. You will learn the following:

  • An understanding of Statistics and Hypothesis Testing
  • Assumptions required to choose a particular test
  • How to install and use a free add-in in MS Excel.
  • Using One-Way Anova and post-hoc tests.
  • Reporting results of data and analyses

PARTICIPANTS SHOULD BRING A LAPTOP WITH MICROSOFT EXCEL INSTALLED TO THIS SESSION

How to publish and to review papers with high quality

Led by Ana Azevedo and Anabela Mesquita , CEOS.PP-ISCAP/P.PORTO

There are several tasks that academics and researchers must accomplish for a successful career. Two important ones are publishing in top journals and, usually as member of program committees, reviewing papers and giving constructive feedback to authors. Both tasks are not trivial, and involve a proficiency in the techniques. This workshop will provide participants with an overview of some of the techniques used for writing a scientific paper. Also, using objective examples and dynamic methodologies, participants will be able to understand how to produce a review that can be useful and can help authors achieve high quality articles.

The workshop is aimed at academics and researchers who need to participate in the contemporary publishing process. You will learn the following:

  • An understanding of the publishing process
  • An understanding of the structure of a scientific paper
  • An understanding of how to produce reviews with constructive feedback

The cost of attending each workshop is £30 for participants registered for the European Conference on Gender Research and £60 for anyone wishing to participate who is not attending the conference. To reserve a place on this workshop please use the online form:
