Course Summary

The course is specifically tailored to PhD students in scientific disciplines. It will provide practical tools and strategies to help students understand key elements of good scientific writing. The course will cover the 5 steps of the writing process, from pre- writing to proofreading, and will focus on the structure and style of good academic writing. The course runs as a three-day residential workshop and will provide plenty of opportunities for students to develop and hone effective writing skills. Topics covered will include: purpose and structure of different sections (Introduction, Methodology, Data analysis and Results, Discussion and Conclusions, Abstract); use of language and grammar (parallel sentences, appropriate tenses, sentence coordination); supporting materials (figures and tables, bibliography, appendices).
