The three-day Scientific Writing Workshop provides training in documenting scientific research in English. The workshop addresses three important aspects of scientific writing – telling the research story, structural organization and writing style. Methods are introduced for documenting scientific research in a coherent, logical, and readable manner.


The first session focuses on defining the research objective and its scientific relevance, by using well-developed thesis statements, research questions and hypotheses. It explains how to present methods, results and discussions in engaging prose.

The second session examines the basic components of English language writing – sentence, paragraph and argument structures. A set of practical exercises for editing and revising texts are provided.

The third session provides instruction for writing an abstract, introduction, thesis and scientific article. In addition participants may bring writing samples for review.
