When writing a paper or thesis, doctoral candidates have to face several challenges. Amongst others, scientific texts have to address the target readership, be structured strictly and logically and be written in a precise and concise style. The complexity of such a writing project can be overwhelming, leading to lack of motivation and enhanced procrastination - especially when writing alone, as an isolated author.

In this 4-week online workshop we will address the components of the scientific writing process, covering efficient planning and writing strategies, techniques for adequate application of scientific style and structure conventions, and efficient revision and feedback strategies. Besides theoretical input on writing topics, you will have plenty of opportunity to work with your own text, make progress with your manuscript and profit from the exchange with fellow writers and mutual text feedback. In addition, we will develop individual strategies to avoid writer´s block and to optimize the writing process.

This 4-week online workshop addresses doctoral candidates who are currently starting, or are currently within, a writing project.

Content:

1. Efficient planning and structuring of scientific texts

2. Getting started: writing drafts and overcoming writer`s block
