Research projects attractive for biopharmaceutical industry by Horacio Moreno, Entrepreneur-in-Residence at IRB Barcelona
If you love reading about the latest scientific advances and are interested in pursuing employment opportunities beyond the bench, then an editorial career might be for you. In this seminar, Brooke LaFlamme, Chief Editor of Communications Biology, will talk about her personal career path and what she thinks makes a great editor. Her presentation will also provide an overview of the editorial process at Nature Research and Communications Biology in particular, including how they decide which papers to send to review and how the publication process works. In the last part of her presentation, she will give advice on how to best organise and present manuscripts prior to submission, from an editor’s perspective. In the final part of the session, you will work in groups to edit your own abstracts, applying the principles learned.
This training workshop aims to:
Become familiar with the working of scientific argumentation.
Recognize the structure and content of different types of scientific documents.
Write a solid project’s abstract.
Learn a few tips and common mistakes in English.
Set the basis for writing of a scientific article.
