In the first half of the class, we will examine the essentials of creating the peer-reviewed biomedical manuscript from the point of view of the journal editor. We will look carefully at what makes a good and bad manuscript and how scientists and physicians can significantly improve their manuscript-construction skills. In the second half of the class we will examine several aspects of writing: English usage and abusage, writing sentences and paragraphs, and how to use numerals and units.
