Course is full! Publishing a high-impact paper or being awarded a big research grant are career makers for a scientist. Writing high-impact science requires polish and politics. So your success will depend not just on your ability to write clearly and succinctly, but also your ability to identify and communicate with confidence the core messages of your research. In this workshop, we will learn effective scientific writing and then take what we learned to prepare an actual scientific manuscript. You will read and edit both published and unpublished scientific manuscripts, and you will prepare your own scientific manuscript.
