From the course site: “During this course you will build a solid understanding of the basics of writing clear and concise texts. We will develop ideas on issues like structure, flow, active voice, and cutting clutter. After we discuss one or two issues, we will return to our articles and work together to develop them. You will be able to apply the skills you learn in this course to writing your all-important research articles. This course will emphasize how to write and how to give feedback. We will therefore develop as both writers and peer-reviewers”
The instructor Mathew Stiller-Reeve has a PhD in Meteorology and has published several peer-reviewed articles on the monsoon as well as interdisciplinary and communication issues. He founded the SciSnack writing community in 2012 when he developed a collaborative writing process and helped start several writing groups around the world. He and 12 international co-authors published this process in 2016, and since then it has been used by summer schools and communication initiatives around the world. Recently, he has become a Thematic Editor of the Geoscience Communication journal and has developed a peer-review process that he recently published on Nature.com. He has held writing seminars and courses over the past 3 years, both in Uganda and Norway.
The course can be attended for free for all members. IBA will in addition cover travel and accommodation for members that are PhD students, “forskerlinje” students and post docs.
