This 2-day workshop invites you to develop your scientific writing skills and design productive writing routines. The goal is not only to improve the quality of the texts produced, but also to make the writing process more efficient and even enjoyable. Day 1 is dedicated to private writing: we write for content, not for effect. We experience how our thinking can profit from writing and learn how to “unblock” ourselves and get our creative juices flowing. We also analyze our writing habits and develop an action plan for improvement. On day 2, we practice revising and polishing of scientific texts for publication. We proceed in stages from macrostructure to language, benefiting from peer-feedback as well as exercises on paragraph and sentence structure, powerful language and the scientific writing style.


● Participants learn and practice various techniques for efficient drafting, structuring, revising and editing of scientific texts.
● Participants write short texts related to their research and revise a previously written conference abstract.
● Participants learn to use writing as a support for their (scientific) thinking.
● Participants reflect upon their writing habits and develop strategies for improvement.
● Participants learn to utilize peer-feedback for effective revising.  

Participants bring to the workshop: 

○ laptop

○ recent experimental result in form of a figure, table or equation

○ previously written conference abstract

○ 2 published research articles from their field: one that was easy to read & follow, and one that was rather hard to understand
