Aim

In this class you will get familiar with the tools and tricks for good scientific writing. You will learn how to structure your text, depending on your goal: to submit an abstract to a conference, write a conference paper, a book chapter, or an article for Science Citation Index, SCI, listed journal.

 

Content

In this class we jointly read excellent, mediocre, and really weak scientific papers. You will learn how to structure and write abstracts, conference papers, as well as journal papers. We will evaluate the the broad range of geoscientific journals, and will also address topics such as the Science Citation Index, the Hirsch factor, discuss the impact and also shortcomings of tools such as Research Gate, Google Scholar, and open access research networks. Furthermore, we will shed light on typical journal paper review processes, have a look at reviewer selection mechanisms, the interpretation of revisions, and paper acceptance mechanisms. We will also address publication policies, publication costs, and the benefits of broadly publishing in your scientific field.
