American Physiological Society (APS) 2012 Live Professional Skills Training Course: “Writing and Reviewing for Scientific Journals.”
Date: August 25, 2011
Writing and Reviewing for Scientific Journals is a 4-day live course designed to teach graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career scientists from all fields and disciplines the skills necessary to write, publish, and review scientific manuscripts. Students come to the course with a draft first-author manuscript and are placed in small working groups composed of 4-5 students who have draft manuscripts in a similar field and an instructor who has publishing expertise in that field. Students then work with each other and their instructor to improve on their draft manuscripts using information that they gain from interactive lectures. Additional information about the course, including a sample agenda and course materials, may be found on our website: http://www.the-aps.org/education/profskills/upcoming.htm.
