The Scientific Writing Workshop teaches the skills to produce research papers of the highest quality for the world's top journals. The workshop takes place over 2 days.

Participants will learn the writing techniques necessary to best construct and explain their ideas and the editing skills to refine and polish their work. A key focus is the structure of good scientific communication. We look at this at the level of sentences, paragraphs, abstracts and entire papers, using examples from a wide range of disciplines. The course also offers tips on grant proposal writing as well as on dealing with editors at journals. We believe that people learn by doing, so each session includes thought-provoking exercises to help participants practice the techniques we teach.

Participants are asked to complete an abstract writing exercise ahead of time. The workshop includes detailed one-to-one feedback on this work with an experienced instructor. This is also an opportunity to discuss any other individual questions and challenges.

There is an exercise. 

The trainers will send the exercise to participants after you register.
