What participants say about our training
“The course was jam packed full of content and actionable points/ideas that you can do straight away to improve your publication success.”
Liz Hughes, Daphne Jackson Trust, UK
“I really liked that I got to see the whole process of publishing a paper from a distant point of view. When you are in the process of publishing a paper, you usually get lost in the details and this course helped me to distance myself from that and to focus on the main points. ”
Participant, ZI Mannheim, Germany
“The course really opened my eyes to other ways of publishing other than just choosing the journal suggested by my supervisor.”
Participant, Daphne Jackson Trust, UK
The full course ‘Writing and publishing a research paper’ is £350 – great value!
