[ONLINE-SEMINAR] Scientific writing: Turning the blank page into a manuscript (two-day)

Montag, 29. Juni 2020, 10:00-16:30

The workshop will be held in English and run for two days, on June 29, 2020, 10 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. and July 6, 2020, 11 a.m. to 4.30 p.m..


Publications of research results is the currency in modern science. It might not be your favourite occupation, but it is a decisive one, strongly determining your future research and career opportunities.

In this course, you will be introduced to the process of writing a scientific paper. In order to deepen and apply this knowledge, you will also actually produce a manuscript based on your research data (and one that might serve as the foundation for a journal submission).


Important topics of the seminar are:

  • Developing a clear main message
  • Priority setting in the writing process
  • Structure and logical flow of the text
  • Create meaningful graphics
  • Memorable introduction and abstract
  • How to develop a daily writing routine
  • Efficient communication with co-authors


Please note: Given that this is a hands-on online-seminar, you need some (analysed) data that can serve as the foundation for a journal article. Please also bring some scientific texts written by you (e.g. Bachelor or Master thesis, as well as any published or upcoming papers) to the seminar.


Technical requirements: To participate in this workshop, you need a stable internet connection, a webcam and a microphone. Participants will receive further detailed information regarding the online-platform prior to the workshop.


This workshop is open to doctoral researchers and postdocs at KIT who are KHYS members.
