After the successes of our previous online courses we are delighted to announce that enrolment is open on our latest free online course ‘Research Writing in the Sciences’.

Who is this course for?

The course is designed for researchers in developing countries, particularly those working in a scientific field (life sciences / natural sciences / other related fields). It is suitable for early career researchers, or those with limited experience in publishing papers in reputable peer-reviewed journals. (Researchers in the social sciences, please see below*)

Course duration: 5 to 8 weeks, depending on the topics you choose

Main topics covered in the course: 

  • Core topics (weeks 1 to 5) - Literature review, publication ethics, making a targeting the right journals, writing and publishing a research paper.
  • Optional topics: (weeks 6 to 8) Writing a grant proposal and Communicating Research Outside Academia (learners can choose either subject or both)

Course dates: 4th September to 29th October 2018

Course leaders: Andy Nobes and Ravi Murugesan of INASP, along with a team of experienced guest facilitators from the AuthorAID network

Complete information about the course along with enrolment instructions are available on the INASP Moodle website: https://moodle.inasp.info/enrol/index.php?id=142. You will need to create an INASP Moodle account if you don’t already have one. Please follow the instructions carefully (you may need to click on the above link again after registering your account).

Please note that although this is an open course, we may have to limit enrolment due to server capacity. We suggest that you enrol in the course as soon as possible if you are interested.

INASP designs and runs capacity development activities that cater for both women and men’s interests and needs. We use methods that increase active participation and an inclusive learning environment, adopting attitudes and behaviours that value differential experiences and perspectives and ensuring listening and respect for each other’s experiences and views.

*If you are a researcher in the social sciences or humanities you will still benefit from most of the content on the course, and you are very welcome to join. Please note, however, that we will be running another online course on Research Writing in the Social Sciences, starting 15th January 2019.
