Writing for Science Journals

  • - (AEST)

This output-oriented workshop will teach scientists, technologists and engineers the essential skills and strategies needed to write articles for science journals such as the British journal Nature and the US journal Science. The three-hour science-writing and media-skills webinar will be held online, via Zoom, and interactive media.

Among other things, the comprehensive course, presented by science writer Peter Spinks MA, will cover fundamental principles and “rules of the journal-writing game”, equipping participants with the confidence and savvy required to write accurately, clearly and simply.

Hands-on training will be provided in preparing articles and illustrative material for multiple outlets, including in-house, local and international publications and the increasing number of online journals. In addition, the sessions will groom participants for approaching journals for the first time. Legal issues affecting researchers and academic publishing will also be discussed. Worked examples and reference materials will be provided.
