Scientific writing is an integral part of what a scientist does, and the value of a well-written paper should not be underestimated. Though it may seem overwhelming, the writing process can help to guide experiments and enable a deeper understanding of experimental results.
Although writing styles and processes can differ tremendously between authors, there are a host of characteristics that are common to effective writing strategies and well-written scientific papers. In this session we will discuss the elements of well-written papers; strategies by which to efficiently translate ideas to experiments to high-quality publications; how to prepare effective figures; and how to respond to reviewer comments to get your paper accepted.
By the end of this session, you will come to realize that scientific writing can be easy, enjoyable, efficient, and rewarding.
