Manuscript Writing for Faculty: A Reviewers Perspective

Dean’s Suite Boardroom 320



Manuscript writing is a key factor in your academic success. A well-recognized intellectual and scientific niche, which is determined by the quality of your research, is the first step towards Academic Success. It is primarily determined by the successful presentation of your findings to the scientific community. Clear writing is one essential reason that papers are accepted for publication and grants are funded. In this context, communication, defined by the reader’s comprehension of your written message becomes the key to your success.

In this workshop, Dr. Laure Aurelian, who also leads OFDD’s quarterly K-Award workshop, will discuss different strategies to help you develop your own clear way of data presentation. She will explain reviewers and readers’ expectations and the most common misconceptions, provide an overview of the strategies to be used in order to write the best manuscript and discuss a pilot program for one-on-one consultation to provide specific help, as needed.

Following the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing one-on-one consultation with Dr. Aurelian to provide specific help through the manuscript-writing process.

The workshop will be limited to 30 participants.
