Scientific Writing and Publishing Workshop for researchers in the Life Sciences

Workshop - United Kingdom

Vitae and Macmillan Science Communication (MSC) present this intensive workshop to train researchers in the life sciences to prepare and publish high quality research papers in international, peer-reviewed journals. Training is led by editors of Nature journals, who bring their expertise and editorial insight from working at the world’s best scientific publishing house.

Over two days we will cover the writing and publishing process from start to finish, using short lectures punctuated by practical exercises and group discussions that focus on the publishing issues that researchers face today. Training runs from 10am – 6pm on the first day and 9am to 5pm on the second day. There will be a networking dinner and accommodation for the evening of the 19th (optional).
