Who is this webinar for?

Researchers and doctoral students who want to overcome the language barrier and communicate their science effectively in English

Why should you attend?

English is the predominant language of science communication, and its influence continues to grow. Most international journals with a wide global readership are printed in English. As a result, most authors aim to publish in English journals. When submitting to an English journal, manuscripts with poor English can put researchers at a disadvantage and delay the publication of research.

As language is an area most non-native English researchers struggle with, in this webinar, the trainer will discuss some common language-related errors, such as sentence fragments, faulty modification, comma splices, run-on sentences, faulty parallelism, that authors make as they draft their manuscripts. Apart from tips to avoid these errors, the trainer will also provide guidance to authors on the correct use of verb tenses, paraphrasing and active and passive voice in scientific writing.

Overall, this webinar will make you aware of language and grammar related mistakes you should avoid making when writing your manuscript for an English journal.
