For most, scientific writing is difficult. Ph.D. candidates and scientists often struggle with writing journal articles or their theses, while simultaneously completing time-consuming research projects. In addition, the standards for the publication of journal articles are increasing so there is pressure to publish high quality papers.
Unfortunately, Ph.D. candidates and scientists often do not receive any formal training to improve their scientific writing. Instead, they learn “by doing”, and by making mistakes.
This lack of training is a serious problem. Scientists have the responsibility to communicate their findings to their peers, and writing is the key to communicating scientific results. Scientific findings can only be used effectively if scientists are able to clearly communicate them.
With discipline and commitment, scientific writing is a skill that can be learned and mastered. In this workshop, Andrea Sanchini will work with participants to develop a set of “how-to” strategies for writing journal articles and theses, and for increasing writing productivity.
