Fachveranstaltung Workshop "Scientific Writing"

Veranstalter: Frauen- und Gleichstellungsbüro/ MeMentUM


    The workshop will focus on


    (1) mistakes that are commonly made by

    non-native English speakers in scientific writing


    (2) the proper construction of paragraphs

    and sentences in an English scientific text and


    (3) a how-to approach to paper writing

    with tips for getting started, overcoming writer's block, how to focus your

    paper/abstract to your audience, things you should know before you start,

    critical areas of a paper and how to choose wording for the correct strength of

    a statement. This how-to portion spends more time in some of these areas than

    others depending on the experience level of the group.


    Some of the common problems for non-native

    English speakers that I discuss include how to choose the strength of the

    adjective or adverb when presenting sensitive results, the importance of good

    English paragraph structuring to clearly present scientific ideas and structure

    papers and grants, how to use attention-getting words (therefore, however,

    etc.) correctly and not overuse them and commonly misused/misunderstood English

    words and phrases.



    Workshop will be held as interactive small group seminar and questions are

    encouraged throughout. They are designed to be flexible and to meet the

    experience and needs of scientists at many levels. The entire workshop will be

    held in English language.
