This two-hour interactive power point lecture is aimed at novices as well as more experienced writers, including graduate students, postdocs, technicians or anyone who is planning to publish a research paper in a peer-reviewed journal. Although there is no single way to write a research paper, there are common approaches and “trade secrets” that will be discussed. The topics include: • What amounts to a good research publication and what are the reasons to write it? • What parts comprise a typical research paper and what is the best order to approach them? • Dos and don’ts in paper writing. • Authorship, acknowledgements and other potentially sensitive issues. • What happens to your paper after it is submitted to a journal? • How to handle reviewers’ critique? The discussion proceeds at a fast pace, yet questions both during and after it are very welcome.
