Scientific Writing

In today's scientific environment recognition, grants and promotions are increasingly linked to publications in peer-reviewed journals and it has become essential to become a savvy navigator of the publication process. But publishing of scientific results should be seen as more than a necessary evil, but as the essence of participating in the scientific endeavor. This course is designed to make the world of scientific journals more transparent and to help the participants to avoid common pitfalls of scientific writing. Topics covered will include:
  • What journals look for
  • The parts of a scientific paper and how to compose them
  • Tips for writing for scientific journals
  • How to design figures
  • How to deal with positive and negative feedback.
The course will include many exercises, including analyses of published papers, writing exercises and an in-depth discussion of abstracts written by the participants.

The target audience for the course are PhD students, PostDocs and all scientists that want to improve their writing skills and increase their knowledge of publication process.

The course language is English.
