Mindful Scientific Writing
Coming in May!
The Mindful Scientific Writing Course is now closed for enrolment. The next edition will be in autumn (tentative dates from 12th October till 13th November 2020), so if you are interested sign in in the button above to stay updated. It is an ONLINE 5-week program for early-career scientists (PhDs and postdocs) that want to write an experimental paper (with the classical IMRaD structure), and develop a strategy to write with confidence and less stress. Here below you can have a preliminary look at the three main outcomes you’ll get from this course:
A strategy to write ALL your experimental articles. If you never took a scientific writing course, I recommend you to find one! Of course, I would like to see you signing with this one. But if you are not sure, please, find one that suits you. You won’t regret ;) In this course, I will provide you with a step-by-step guide that you can use over and over to write your full manuscripts. I will also give you tips to avoid the most common mistakes when writing.
An almost complete draft of your paper. Perhaps you took one course (or several), but it was too technical, too short, or it did not involve time to actually write your paper. This is not just a course, it is a 5-week program where you will have the time and the accountability to write your experimental paper (if you have data for it!). If you don’t have your data yet, don´t worry, you can still write a big part of your manuscript, and you´ll get the outcomes 1 and 3. A unique aspect of this program compared with other online courses is the feedback. We will do 5 online group meetings to discuss any questions, I will review the key sections of what you write during the course, and I will be answering any doubt it arises along the way. Not bad right?
A mindful approach to your academic life. This is the unique aspect of this program that you don’t see often in other courses (and I hope that changes soon!). As a scientist, you will be writing a lot during your whole career, so it is essential you have tools to manage some of the common mental struggles. Here I will add as a bonus, simple yoga videos and audios with meditations you can do whenever you want. But if you think this is not for you, I totally get it, and you are very welcome to ignore that content and focus on the outcomes 1 and 2, no judgement, I promise!
If you are interested, or you think it can be good for PhDs or postdocs you supervise, please click here below and I will send you an update when I publish more about this program. And as usual, you can always send me an email here.
