Why do so many early career scientists find it such a challenging task to create a well-written and eye-catching illustrated research paper? Why are articles mostly lacking coherence among story and visual aids?

Well, writing research articles is different from just reporting your field or lab work or pulling up some graphs out of a hat. In brief, one must put together a concise presentation on paper that has to invite the reader, be engaging to read, and be graphical attractive to the audience. To draw readers to your articles, one must pair the seven graphic design principles with the five key characteristics of scientific writing.

If you feel overwhelmed with scientific writing, need more structure, or just want to improve your publishing skills, this course is for you. If you are looking for a few hacks that could improve your graphic and writing skills, we have you covered.

You will discover how to break down the article creation into clearly defined tasks. You will be shown how writing and graphic design can evolve together into a harmonizing piece of literature that your target audience will enjoy while saving you time in the progress.
