Graduate students about to write papers and theses. Although new graduate students can take this course, it is primarily an advanced course intended for graduate students in their second year or beyond.
The course was last given
Improve your writing and avoid getting that annoying "We regret to inform you that your submission was not accepted..." letter.
Prior experience from writing at least one or two research papers. Not suitable for graduate students who just started out (and I mean it).
A series of seminars that cover different aspects of the publication process and tips for improving writing. Participants are encouraged to bring their own text for discussion and commenting at one of the seminars.
Yet another course on how to improve your scientific writing. This one focuses on the publication process and how to improve the details of your writing to help you get published. The course convers most aspects of the scientific manuscript, from title to references.
