Description: The course will provide the background and rationale for writing a scientific paper or a review including how to choose a topic, define an audience and best ways to reach it. It will emphasize the importance of knowing about indexing and how to critically search the literature, making sure that one takes notes while reading and uses automated devices such as EndNotes. The audience will be encouraged to define a logical structures and to write an outline as one of the first steps in the preparation of their article. We will give advice on how to prepare the various portions of research articles. The organization of a review varies from state-of-the-art reviews favored by Handbooks to those providing a new understanding in a rapidly moving field best suited for a Journal. We will also cover References, Tables and Figures. We will also describe how to best prepare other types of presentations including conference reports, book reviews, theses as well as oral presentations and posters. We will conclude with an overview of the Review process and of the new perspectives and pitfalls of electronic and open access publications.
