How to Get Published in English - Scientific Writing - July 02-04, 2024 - EN

Online Course

Workshop language is English.


 

Target group:

Researchers and other academic staff increasingly need to publish some of their work in English. This helps them reach a wider audience and improve their academic standing. Sometimes their level of English leads reviewers to reject the papers or readers to misunderstand or under-appreciate the contents.

The result is that their peers misunderstand or under-appreciate the author’s good work.

 

Objective:

Leadership Sculptor offers a Scientific Writing Workshop to help participants gain confidence in their scientific writing and editing skills and to provide them with feedback and tips that will help them improve their current and future writing projects.

The full workshop comprises two-and-a-half days of interactive sessions that take participants step-by-step through the writing and revision of a paper or other similar document. We also offer a two-day version of the full workshop to accommodate client schedules.

The participants apply the theory to their own texts and receive individual feedback from the trainer on their texts and tips on how to improve their writing. This writing is an integral part of the course. Experience shows that, the more people put into this course, the more they learn.

By the end of the course each participant will have polished at least one text and will be able to approach their next paper with confidence.
