Advanced Academic Writing

Good writing skills are essential for getting manuscripts published, and for securing research fundning.

This course (credits: 7,5 hp) will allow you to focus on honing your practical writing skills in realistic settings. You will write manuscripts for mock publication, get back mock comments from the "editors" and "reviewers", and you will write and "submit" rebuttal letters and revised manuscripts. You will also write a grant application including budget.

You can find example documents, links, and tools under 'Useful resources' to the left. If you want, you can use your own research data in your texts, but be careful about spreading sensitive or patentable information. It is recommended (but not required) that you have previously attended other academic writing courses, as the pace of this course will be fast. You will be kept very busy writing. The next course starts November 2nd, 2020.  This is currently a 100 % online course.
