Preparing a manuscript for submission to a scientific journal can be a challenging task for many scientists. However, it's crucial to recognize that scientific writing is an indispensable component of the research process. In fact, the manner in which results are presented is often just as significant as the results themselves. Crafting a scientific paper is a skill that can be cultivated over time and progressively advances with practice. This concise course aims to provide early career scientists with straightforward guidelines for effectively communicating their research and, consequently, enhancing their prospects of successful publication. Our program will invite guest editors from various respected journals who will impart fundamental insights into paper writing. They will also offer practical advice on how to embark on the writing process, how to structure the paper for maximum impact, and how to adeptly address reviewers' comments.

We warmly encourage participants to submit any questions they may have for our speakers in advance of the course by reaching out to the organizers. This will enable our speakers to tailor their presentations to address specific concerns and inquiries from the attendees.

While this course is open to everyone with an interest in scientific writing, please bear in mind that the number of available seats is limited due to the room's capacity. Therefore, we kindly request that attendees arrive promptly to secure their place. For any additional information or inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact the course conveners. We are here to assist and support your journey toward becoming a more proficient scientific writer.

If you are interested in the aspects of writing your manuscript - don’t miss the short course: Meet the editors (2): how to publish and peer review. Both courses can be listened to independently.
