Writing a scientific article is a systematic process that can be learned and improved with guidance and training. The course provides hands-on training, applicable to quantitative scientific papers.

Participants are expected to bring the analyses of their own data. They will receive guidance on how to develop each manuscript section (e.g., Methods, Results, etc.), and how to avoid or correct common mistakes and pitfalls of scientific writing. Students also get hands-on training in the peer-review process.

The course meets mostly every two weeks (according to schedule) and is composed of seven structured meetings, including peer feedback and editing suggestions. Participants are expected to complete their writing assignments on their own and submit their work for peer review ahead of time.
