Working on your text

In this course we will write a test paper with your real data, going through the whole writing process. If you want, you can finish this paper after this course has ended. So, you effectively use the time here for real paper writing. There are different exercises throughout the course, for you to apply the learned material to your own writing. Please bring your scientific texts to the seminar (Bachelor, Master thesis, as well as any published or upcoming papers).
