Writing well—or at least well enough to get published—is often the basis for successfully pursuing a professional scientific career. In most fields, writing in English is essential for gaining international recognition of one's research. While writing in general and writing in English in particular are important parts of academic life, many researchers are unsure about what is considered "good writing," what makes a paper written in English successful, or how the writing and publication process can best be managed.
In this workshop, you will train how you can communicate your research most effectively. We will practice important strategies for writing English sentences, paragraphs, and texts that meet the expectations of readers, reviewers, and editors alike. By the end of the workshop, you will be aware of the fundamental criteria for good scientific writing in English and be able to prepare your own texts more easily for publication.
In this workshop, you will learn to
apply the principles of “good” scientific writing
write clearly and concisely
avoid common grammatical errors
link ideas to make your text flow easily
write well-focused paragraphs
craft powerful abstracts
employ self-editing skills
postdocs, academic staff, juniorprofessors
