Scientific Writing Retreat: Make Progress on an Article

Registration closed


Practical, online course for working on a scientific article. This course is dynamic and highly interactive. We will use the Zoom online meeting platform, which facilitates discussion and small-group work using the breakout room function.

This course is for participants who are in the process of writing a scientific article for publication. Before taking this course, participants should already have a thorough understanding of the structure of the scientific research article. This workshop takes a practical, hands-on approach to writing. Through a series of exercises that break writing down into small steps, participants will make concrete progress on their article during the sessions. Participants can start from an idea, a set of analyzed data, a conference paper, an article draft, a revise & resubmit or a rejected paper. Please bring any materials you will need for working on your article (data, drafts, reviewers' comments, etc).
