- Young scientists with little experience in scientific writing,
- Experienced scientists who want to make writing easier by learning certain basic rules.
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?
- What sections is a paper composed of?
- What information should each section contain and how do I present it?
- How do I develop my rough draft most efficiently?
- How do I submit my manuscript and what should I pay attention to when doing so?
- How do I react to comments from the journal or if my manuscript is rejected?
- How do I look for and select secondary literature?
- 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 and manuscripts using the techniques they learned. These first efforts will be discussed in detail, in the group and individually.
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.
- Lecture / Presentation
- Practical exercises, analysis and discussion of examples
- Analysis and discussion of one’s own texts
- Open discussion of one’s own experiences and problems
- Seminar handbook
