Mastering scientific writing
5 July 2020
LUISS DATALAB, Rome, Italy
Of the many challenges for a young researcher, the understanding and the interaction with the process of scientific publishing is one the least discussed but with arguably the greatest importance for the career prospects of a young researcher.
Experienced editors in top journals across disciplines will tell us their perspective on the process of successful scientific writing, editorial assessment and peer review process, unraveling the aspects that are often left unspoken in the learning experience of a young scientist.
Free event with limited availability
