EASE School for Manuscript Editors and Academic Authors – Week 3

Wednesday, 18 September 2024, 10am – 1pm (UK time)

This four-session online training course has been designed to help researchers, academics, technical writers, and copy editors who edit technical documents – especially research papers – to make them more acceptable to journal editors and publishers, less likely to be desk-rejected, and once accepted, be published ahead of other manuscripts. The 12-hour course is held once a week spread over four weeks, with two topics covered each week over 3 hours:

Week 3

  • Mastering the minutiae of citations and references
  • Learning to be a more effective academic writer

The training will be led by EASE Council member Yateendra Joshi, and two guest speakers. This course is particularly suitable for early-career researchers and manuscript editors but can benefit all those involved in writing and editing scientific documents irrespective of the level of experience and expertise.
