Writing workshops

The entire research conversation transpires via journal articles. What makes an article worthy of publication? How can ideas best be paired with language? How do you ensure that the essence of your ideas is translated without oversimplifying the complexity of your research? And how do you help others with this same process? These workshops help you and your research group achieve the relevant writing goals.
