The Office for Research Career Development is pleased to offer a new course on scientific writing. This 5-week, interactive course is intended for junior faculty who are ready to begin drafting a research paper. This class will combine didactic instruction with participant presentations of selected aspects of their own papers. Therefore, in order to register, participants must have obtained the data needed to develop a scientific paper. This class will cover the following subjects: planning to write a research paper; writing the major sections of a scientific paper, including the Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion and Abstract; and understanding the publication process. Participants must commit to attend and actively participate in all 5 sessions. Please note: two sessions -- on Sept. 14 and Oct. 5 – will likely extend to 2.5 hours; the remainder of the sessions (Sept 7, 21, and 28) will be 2 hours
