Writing Scientific Articles

This course aims to develop doctoral students' proficiency in writing up science in English.

Course information

Application for the course in Spring 2022 will open 1 November 2021.

The course focuses on clear, correct and reader-friendly writing. The sessions include analysis of typical research articles from the participants’ own fields and peer reviews of drafts.

Students need to have reached a point at which they have results and are able to work on a research paper during the course. The course is therefore not suitable for first-year doctoral students.

Please apply using the forms further down on this page. Make sure the course is in your eISP. We will then handle the admission and registration procedure.
