    When writing a paper, you have to face several challenges such as addressing the target readership, structuring the manuscript in a logical way and writing in a precise and concise style. The complexity of such a scientific writing project can be overwhelming, leading to feelings of disorientation, lack of motivation and enhanced procrastination.

    To overcome these obstacles we will address efficient planning and writing strategies, techniques for adequate application of scientific style– and structure conventions, and efficient revision and feedback strategies. Another topic of the workshop will be the publishing process, i.e. how to choose a journal and communication with editors and reviewers. Besides theoretical input, you will have opportunity to work with your own text and to get feedback from co-participants. In addition, we will develop individual strategies to avoid writer´s block and to optimize the writing process.

    • Optimizing the writing process and overcoming writer`s block.
