The aim of the course is to write and submit a scientific paper to an international peer-reviewed journal. During lectures, participants will learn about the basic writing techniques, rules and tricks. We will then discuss the structure and the content of the manuscript, followed by the submission and review process with a step-by-step approach. Homework is an integral and important part of the course which comprises the writing of the relevant part of the manuscript. We will discuss parts of the paper in groups during the practical sessions in between lectures. Data analysis is not part of the course material.
