Learn to write well, publish in international journals and deliver quality public presentations.
This 1-week course combines three key skills that are important for most people and essential for academics and researchers – writing, publishing and public speaking.
As science is becoming truly international, researchers are faced with the challenge of publishing in established international journals. Developing a strong publication and citation track-record is a major challenge for all scientists.
Dissemination of knowledge and promotion of ideas is another important part of a career in research, academia and other professions. The power of knowledge can be much greater when knowledge is well-presented.
