[BEAM] Academic Writing (March 21-22, 2022)

“Writing is an essential part of the successful researcher’s skillset.  However, writing at the standard necessary to publish in peer-reviewed journals can be challenging. This two-day writing workshop is for researchers who wish to improve their academic writing skills in English.
This practical workshop will focus on the structure of an English paper and abstract and how to improve the style and readability of an academic text. Participants are encouraged to bring along a sample of their current writing that will be the basis for peer review on the second day of the course.  In addition, participants should bring at least two examples of research articles from their field (written by native English speakers if possible).”

Trainer: Anne-Lesley Weiling
