The effective communication of technical and scientific research is vital both to the research community and to forging a career in science and technology. When done well this ensures you get credit for your research and others learn from your work, build on it and help improve the world we live in.
This course will provide a step-by-step guide through the process of writing research publications and will help participants identify the most publishable elements of their research and get them published in the appropriate international journals.
Technical writing and publishing a paper can be challenging and this course will help you to write technical and scientific journal papers and get them published. It is suitable for those who are making a start at writing for publication and also those who have submitted articles in the past but would like to improve their skills and improve the impact of their publications. Participants can opt to extend the course with an additional week to include workshops on paper article or grant writing and peer review.
Experienced staff from the School of Computing, Engineering and Physical Sciences will be responsible for the management of the programme. However, it will pull together expertise from all subject areas within the University to ensure that delegates will have some discipline specific questions answered.
