Scientific Writing (for PhD students of "Neurosensory Sc. and Systems" and "Medicine and Health Sc.")

This course of Prof. Christiane Thiel consists of two parts. The first part is a 4h introduction dealing with general facts how to write a scientific paper. Note that some of the suggestions are specific to the broader area of neuroscience.

The second and much longer part of the course focuses the actual job "writing a paper". For this purpose students will form teams of 2 persons preferably from a similar field/background). I will schedule 4-5 meetings with each of these teams on an individual basis. For these meetings your task will be to write (first meeting) the methods of YOUR paper and to read and comment the methods part of your team partner. The next meetings will then be on the results, introduction and discussion part and the last meeting on all the rest (abstract, figures etc.) In each meeting we will then work on both your and your partners parts and you will receive both feedback from me and your partner on how to improve your paper.

Requirements: You must have enough data to be able to write your own paper.
