Learning outcomes

The student will learn how to write a scientific paper, search for the relevant literature, submit a scientific manuscript for publication and the details of the refereeing process, including answering to referees and editors.


The course will be mostly based on study groups supervised by the lecturer. We will study first the basic structure of a scientific manuscript and the scientific language used. We will then work together on the preparation of a manuscript to learn these techniques hand-on, using LaTex as main programme for writing. We will look also at the main programs used to create plots and make figures for the manuscript and give examples explaining how to use them. Finally we will discuss how to submit a manuscript for publications and the follow up steps leading to publication.
