Efficient scienftifc writing: Writing better papers, faster

The course is based on exercises that are connected to your own writing of mainly articles but also your thesis. Exercises include finding out when you yourself write best (Mondays, Wednesdays, mornings, afternoons…) and how long sessions you yourself should use for writing (2h, 15 minutes…) for being most efficient.

You will also read articles that you select because you love the topic, find it easy to read, or very difficult to read. By analyzing how other articles are written you will relate this to your own writing.
