How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper

Your research is not completed till the paper is published. In this course we go through the key steps towards a primary scientific publication. You will learn how improving the quality of writing improves the quality of thought. In the process, you will experience the fun and hopefully overcome some frustration of scientific writing. In scientific writing you need to follow some simple rules on structuring your thoughts and words, reviewing, editing and polishing a publication before you start feeling comfortable with and even enjoying the process! We focus on the following:

| Before you start
Identify and distil the message. Mind map your paper.

| From Sketch to Text
Sentences, Paragraphs, Topic Sentences, Arguments, maintaining the "red line"

| Keep it short and precise
Choose the exact word; Keep it simple but not trivial

| Parts of the paper
Where to place what? How to formulate parts of the paper

| The submission process
How to submit, letter to the editor, dealing with reviews comments

| Good Writing Practices
Cite correctly, deal with co-authors
