CDT WIRe Cohort I Researchers Attend A Scientific Writing Training and Retreat

CDT WIRe’s first cohort participated in a weeklong scientific writing training and retreat recently. The retreat aimed to help the students understand the need for scientific writing; learn more about the publication process; strategies and techniques to writing; barriers to scientific writing and how to overcome them; and also, to learn from their peers.

During the week, they attended sessions on ‘My approach to writing’ by Jerry Knox from Cranfield University and Fran Pick from the University of Sheffield. The students brought a piece of their research work to the retreat (data set, non-started or an ongoing paper) and worked on it using their learnings from the retreat; and peer reviewed work of their peers.
