The course is on Scientific Writing and Publishing (SWAPE) and gives a broad outline of the whole process from planning a paper until after it appears in print. Writing the paper is only a small part of this process so there is a lot more to think about than just the grammar and syntax. SWAPE tells you about choosing a journal, when and why you write, identifying your audience, planning writing, the ethical issues in publishing and the international rules that regulate them, and how to deal with coauthors, editors, and referees.
The course tells you about structuring a paper, language problems such as tense, clarity, and conciseness, and dealing with references and citations. The explanation of the mechanics of submission, covering letters, refereeing, and how to respond to rejections will be a further topic. Following that, the course deals with copyright and its difficulties, with acceptance and with publicity to raise the profile of your paper.
Target group: Young scientists from the Natural Sciences with no or little publishing experience. There will be practical exercises to do before and after the course.
