The focus of the course is primarily practical and will include tips on structuring an article, peer review, preparing images for publication, referencing … and how not to annoy an editor! Throughout the day there will be short practical writing exercises, so it would be helpful if attendees could bring examples of works-in-progress or be prepared to talk about an idea that they have for publication.
