Writing Research Articles
Love it or loath it, writing is an essential skill for a successful researcher. But writing at the standard necessary to publish in a peer-reviewed journal can be challenging. Indeed, the way most of us were taught to write at school has not really prepared us for the professional writing we need today.
This two-day writing workshop is for PhD students and postdocs who wish to improve their academic writing skills in English. Participants will learn tools and techniques to demystify the process of writing a research article.
Topics covered on this course include understanding the writing process, appreciating cultural differences in approaches to writing, learning the building blocks of what makes good research writing, identifying typical mistakes made when writing an academic text, and discovering what journal editors are looking for.
Participants are encouraged to bring along a writing sample that will be the basis for peer review on the second day of the course. In addition, we'll deconstruct a well-written paper from the participant's discipline.
We believe people learn better when they are having fun. Our workshops are lively with plenty of discussion, pair work and group exercises. It's a great opportunity for academics to learn from and connect with each other.
We usually customise our workshops for different disciplines and deliver them to participants at their location. In response to the current situation, we are offering customised online training.

Es war ein großartiger Workshop, bei dem ich sehr viel gelernt habe und ich sehr viel dafür auf meinem weiteren Karriereweg benutzen kann. Ich fand es toll, dass auf Satzzeichen, unterschiedlichste Arten von Wörter, ... eingegangen wurde und es sofort an Hand von Beispielen, eigenen Texten und publizierten Texten geübt wurde.
