Writing is central to scientific communication and academic work. This course will introduce you to writing and reviewing scientific articles and theses. We will use a mixture of lectures, individual and group work, and article discussions to understand the DOs and DON'Ts in scientific writing. Foremost, you will learn strategies that are common to both thesis and paper writing, including (i) how to plan, organise and structure your article/thesis, (ii) how to research relevant literature, (iii) how to write different parts of articles/theses, (iv) how to plan and integrate visual items, (v) how to evaluate articles/theses of your peers, (vi) how to identify and avoid plagiarism, and (vii) how to cite. Additionally, we will discuss certain aspects that are specific to writing scientific articles, for example journal aims and scopes, editorial processes, cover letters, and author responses. In the end, you should be able to communicate your scientific results in a structured and appealing way, be it for your thesis, academia, or public and private sectors.
