The Workshop

Learn how to produce research papers of the highest quality suitable for the world’s top journals
A unique approach

OUR scientific writing workshops are unique. With a balance of thought-provoking lectures, carefully chosen exercises and one-to-one feedback, we focus on the fundamentals of good communication and how to use them to produce scientific papers of the highest quality. We also offer personal one-to-one feedback on how to apply all these ideas to your own writing, a service that early-career scientists and engineers find particularly useful. Our workshops are designed to give you a competitive edge in the increasingly cut-throat worlds of science and engineering. We hope they can contribute to your success.
