Writing Scientific Articles

This course aims to develop doctoral students' proficiency in writing up science in English. This page presents basic course information, schedule and information on how to apply.

Course information

The Spring course 2023 has started. Welcome to apply for autumn 2023 in May, via a link further down on this page.

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.
