Audience: PhDs, Scientists
Frequency: 2 x Year
Researchers increasingly need to publish their work in English in order
to reach a wider audience and improve their academic standing. Sometimes
their level of English leads reviewers to reject the papers or to
misunderstand the contents.
The seminar comprises two one-day interactive sessions that take
participants step-by-step through the writing and revision of one of
their papers at the conceptual, organisational and writing levels.
First, participants learn how to ensure that the paper?s
content fits to their message and audience. Then, they learn how to
organize a paper and structure a logical argument in English. Finally,
participants learn how to revise their texts at the section, paragraph
and sentence level. At each level we explore the
main differences between papers in English and German.
Between sessions, participants apply the theory to their own texts. They
also receive feedback and suggestions for improvement of their texts
from the workshop leader. By the end of the course each participant will
have polished one paper and will be able to
approach the next one confidently
