A critical aspect of the scientific process is the reporting of new results in scientific journals in order to disseminate that information to the larger community of scientists. Communication of your results contributes to the pool of knowledge within your discipline (and others!) and very often provides information that helps others interpret their own experimental results. The training course guides you in choosing appropriate formats and/or writing styles in developing various scientific journals. The participants will also be guided to outline a complete scientific paper, choose an appropriate journal to which they will submit the finished paper for publication, and prepare a checklist that will allow them to independently judge whether your paper is ready to submit.
