Scientific writing skills for academic articles

This six-hour workshop is aimed at postgraduate students who are in the process of writing an academic article. The workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to refine their scientific writing skills in an interactive, practical way and to receive answers about academic writing in general.

Various aspects about writing academic articles will be discussed, such as the different types of academic articles, components of an article, style and structure. However, the purpose of the workshop is not to furnish participants with a recipe or rigid writing ‘rules’ but rather to provide  guidelines about using different writing strategies to effectively convey information, data and arguments.
