About this course

Scientific writing can be daunting, especially when working towards your first publication. Writing a research paper is critical for any researcher’s success and our revamped, improved course “Writing a Research Paper: 2nd Edition” is a solid platform to gain the skills to navigate your scientific writing journey. While we have made every effort to make this course as comprehensive as possible, scientific writing is nuanced and it is normal for researchers to have more questions. 

In this webinar recording, Davide Esposito, Chief Editor of Nature Catalysis and Zoltan Fehervari, Senior Editor of Nature provide answers to frequent questions on scientific writing.
