Doing Science is difficult enough, but writing about it and getting it published can feel even more difficult. How can I write a good abstract? How can I organise my results? Which journal should I publish in? and last but not least – how can I handle the referee comments in the most strategic manner and maybe even turn an initial rejection into acceptance?
In this humorous workshop Bodil Holst takes you through some of the challenges of scientific paper writing. The talk is based on her book: Scientific Paper Writing: A Survival guide illustrated by Jorge Cham the creator of PhD Comics. The workshop participants are encouraged to bring an abstract for a paper they are currently working on, if they have one, otherwise just turn up.
More information coming soon. Registration opens a few weeks before the course.
