Publishing Your Research: guidance for natural scientists

Veranstaltung 2024-27

Date: 23 + 24 September 2024; 9 am - 5 pm

Venue: SFG 2010

Trainer: Dr. Andrew Davis


This course is about writing and publishing a good scientific paper, something that is essential for a scientific career but rarely taught in the ordinary science syllabus.

The course goes step by step through the entire process.  It covers the reasons for publishing, how to choose a journal, identifying the audience for your publication, the ethics of publication, and the kind of language required and how to avoid common problems. Then each section of a publication is discussed systematically including their purpose and content.  There’s a special section on presenting data in figures and tables.  Thereafter, the course deals with publication including the submission process, who editors are and what they want, and who referees are and how to respond to their comments. The course also includes a look at copyright and publicizing your publication.
