Successfully designing the transition to the writing phase
Scientific writing for doctoral students in natural and life sciences
Doctoral students in the natural and life sciences with empirical research projects who are writing a monographic (not cumulative) dissertation and are in the transition from data collection to the writing phase.
In the working process of a monographic dissertation, the transition from literature review and data collection to writing is often particularly challenging. This is because a monograph is usually a much more complex and extensive task than, for example, writing a 15-page scientific article. In most cases, more material has to be processed, theoretical and methodological principles have to be presented in more detail, and, last but not least, a longer working process has to be controlled and sustained. The workshop "All I have to do now is write this down ..."? - Successfully designing the transition to the writing phase" consists of two sub-formats: a two-day workshop and a 60-minute individual coaching session for all participants.
A brief overview of the workshop contents:
- Challenges of scientific writing and typical stumbling blocks for junior researchers
- (Re-)focusing: clarifying positions and messages of the scientific text proposal
- Conceptualizing the text with the help of a concept abstract; review and consolidation with peer feedback loop
- Techniques for starting writing: low-threshold writing; creativity and control: first draft and revision
- Which writing strategy suits me - promoting strengths, mitigating risks
- On the relationship between scientificity and comprehensibility; technical language and technical jargon
- text comprehensibility toolbox
