Event description

Description

----- [Ticket fee will be fully-refunded after attending]-------


In this workshop, we will consider strategies for writing coherent, concise and clear scientific papers for publication. Themes included in the session will be:

  1. Writing for the readership – what the reader expects from the various sections of a paper (with particular focus on Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Data Analysis and Discussion sections) and what editors are looking for in papers.

  2. Ensuring that your paper is coherent for the readership

  3. Avoiding ambiguity

  4. Editing to ensure consistency and conciseness - with emphasis on the challenges of producing a well-polished co-authored paper.
