This one-day, award-winning course concentrates on the skill, and in particular on the process of scientific writing. It has helped thousands of time-pressed doctors, PhD students and academics to get papers published in the journals of their choice.
Participants come with data (or an idea) for a paper, and we then guide them through the planning, writing and submitting processes in easy stages. At the end of the course they have a clear concept of their paper, plus a draft introduction and a plan for finishing the task. This popular course was organised by Postgrade (Zeist) in 1992-2007 and is now back with PAOFarmacie with a different, licensed trainer.
Who should – and should not - attend
This course is suitable for anyone who wants to look at how they write journal articles, and who is ready to start writing one, such as doctors, pharmacists, PhD students and academics.
