Scientific Writing And Publishing Course
Writing well and effectively communicating your research is important, both for advancing science and furthering your career.
A clear writing style is vital for being understood by your readers. It is a skill that requires frequent practice.
The title and abstract of a paper serve to draw in the reader. How can you keep them concise, but still accurate and informative?
Accessible and logically structured data are vital both for you and for people trying to reproduce and build on your work.
Figures are a paperâ€™s backbone; displaying the most important features of your data and supporting your researchâ€™s conclusions.
The options when selecting a peerâ€reviewed journal may look overwhelming, with many factors to consider. So how do you decide?
Knowing the editorial process and understanding how editors make decisions can make your experience of publishing much smoother.
What are the roles of editors, authors and referees in the vetting, peer review and decision-making processes?
Review papers are a synthesis of the literature and describe how the understanding of a topic has advanced in recent years.
Peer review plays a crucial role in the advancement of science and remains an effective way to control the quality of papers.
Misconduct can undermine scientific research. Do you understand the different types of plagiarism and how it can be detected?
When used responsibly, research metrics are useful tools for comparing and assessing research outputs.
