Scientific Writing
Course # 565

Advertising Description:

This workshop will provide a journal editor's perspective on effective scientific writing. Targeted to graduate students and research assistants, the topics of this workshop will include: how the editorial process works; what the expectations for particular sections of a research manuscript are; how to improve clarity; how to structure an abstract; and how to effectively present data. Whereas the first hour of the workshop will be dedicated to theory, the second (participation optional) will be a practical session in which example abstracts will be improved.
