Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this seminar you will learn how to prepare a scientific paper step by step from data selection to submission.

SEMINAR DAY 1:
The most important aspects of writing a paper will be discussed using a very practical approach and all questions related to writing answered:
-What data can I publish?
-Do I already have enough results for a publication?
-How do I structure my paper so that it is cogent and interesting?
-How do I prepare an abstract, an introduction, the methods and the results sections and the discussion?
-How do I proofread most efficiently?
-Where and how do I submit my manuscript?
-How do I react to comments from the journal?
-What particular language characteristics do I have to consider in a scientific text?
-How do I prevent or solve writer’s block?

SEMINAR DAY 2:
The participants had one month to prepare their own texts using the techniques they learned. These first efforts will be discussed in detail, in the group.

In addition to a lot of practical tips, each participant will receive a detailed handbook which describes again step by step how to prepare a publication. Practical exercises, numerous examples and plenty of time for discussion and questions contribute to a better understanding of the seminar topics. After the seminar every participant will have techniques at her/his disposal that will help them to easily and efficiently develop a conclusive and good to read scientific paper.
