    Effective Scientific Writing I (C-K834-0003)

    Effective Scientific Writing I
    distance
    English
    However good your science is, if it is not communicated effectively, its value is lessened. Whether you like it or not, the modern scientist is a professional writer. Yet despite the ‘publish or perish’ culture in scientific
    research, almost no investment is made into teaching researchers how to become better writers. Since 2006, Craig Riddell has helped edit hundreds of scientific papers to successful publication, many for high-impact factor
    journals. This experience led to the development of a bespoke scientific writing course, Effective Scientific Writing (ESW), for researchers working in educational institutions and commercial research institutes. Writing is a
    fundamental professional development skill that can and should be learned. ESW uses real-life examples to change your way of thinking about writing and your approach to it.
