Scientific writing: Turning the blank page into a manuscript

1 + 8 March 2021, online via Zoom

Publications of research results are the currency in modern science. It might not be your favorite occupation, but it is a decisive one, strongly determining your future research and career opportunities.

In this course, you will be introduced to the process of writing a scientific paper.

In order to deepen and apply this knowledge, you will also actually produce a manuscript based on your research data (and one that might serve as the foundation for a journal submission).

A-Z of scientific writing

  • Developing a clear main message
  • Priority setting in the writing process
  • Structure and logical flow of the text
  • Create meaningful graphics
  • Memorable introduction and abstract
  • How to develop a daily writing routine
  • Efficient communication with co-authors

Please note: Given that this is a hands-on webinar, you need some (analyzed) data that can serve as the foundation for a journal article. Please also bring some scientific texts written by you (e.g. Bachelor or Master thesis, as well as any published or upcoming papers) to the seminar. Details:
