We offer a wide range of training events to present context, tools and perspectives related to writing up scientific results and research ideas.

The sort of events we offer include

  • seminar talks and keynote lectures;
  • half- or full-day workshops, which typically consist of several lecture modules and interaction with texts provided by up to 30 participants;
  • in-depth workshops of two to five days, in which we work with typically 4–12 participants directly on their manuscripts;
  • tailored training modules delivered over several semesters for schools and networks.

In all types of events, participants will learn about the essential elements of the writing process, about typical editorial checkpoints, the changing publishing landscape, widespread myths and typical mistakes, and about how an appreciation of these aspects can help to communicate more efficiently with editors, peers and the wider public.
