Academic Writing in the Natural and Life Sciences: Towards Organisation and Motivation


This workshop takes a comprehensive approach to the writing process by offering a broader perspective that goes beyond traditional technical writing skills.

Participants will not only focus on technical skills like structuring a scientific article or constructing clear and concise sentences, but they will cover also issues of writing productivity, developing habits and mindset, using tools properly to assist them in writing, exploring self-management techniques for staying motivated throughout the writing process and discussing the role of procrastination and perfectionism in writing.

By addressing all of these factors in the workshop, participants can gain a more well-rounded understanding of what it takes to be a successful writer.
Included Topics:

  • Common challenges and misunderstandings in scientific writing
  • How to organise the flow of information
  • The sections of a scientific article
  • The stages of the writing process
  • Different types of writers
  • Techniques and AI-based software/tools to increase writing productivity
  • Clear scientific writing
  • Teamwork with co-authors and supervisors
  • Motivational tools to increase writing productivity
  • Procrastination and perfectionism in writing

Note for participants: During this workshop, you will work on your own writing project. This writing project could be part of your current (or your next) journal article, or part of your thesis. Therefore, please choose in advance which text you wish to work on during the workshop.
