Who should attend?

This workshop is designed for those who need to communicate and disseminate research information – and believe that they could do it more effectively. It is particularly useful for graduate students and for researchers early in their careers.

Content:

Many of us are obliged to publish or perish. The workshop starts with instructions on how and where to search for scientific literature. This is followed by a section on the proper use of grammar, style and how to get your message across more effectively. The workshop also provides information on how to write a journal article and get it published. This section introduces the writer to the publishing game and shows you how to be a winner. Finally, for those who dream of becoming a book author on how to convert a thesis into a book and reach a wider audience.
