Neuroscience Careers Network Forum
18th February 2015
There is more to preparing a manuscript for publication than collecting all the data. Presentation of the hypothesis and the experimental procedures in a coherent manner, as well as thoroughly addressing questions the reader might have, are of paramount importance for successful and painless (as much as possible) submission! Take this opportunity to get some invaluable tips from leading researchers on how to prepare a manuscript and how to answer reviewers’ comments as well as guidance from a leading journal’s editor on successful manuscript preparation. Talks will be followed by a drinks reception for networking where you will be able to talk to the speakers.

When & Where
UCL Neuroscience Careers Network (NCN)
The UCL Neuroscience Careers Network (NCN) seeks to promote the professional development of UCL Neuroscientists. The network provides opportunities for neuroscientists to meet their peers, to share ideas, experience and initiate collaborations. It also provides a platform for careers advice and the dissemination of information regarding jobs, training and funding opportunities. The NCN is organised by a committee made up of representatives from a variety of departments under the UCL Neuroscience Domain and includes both post-doctoral researchers and PIs.
