Scientific Writing: Turning the Blank Page into a Manuscript

Publications of research results is 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.
