How to write and publish impactful scientific papers
Future Faculty, WINGS and Careers Center organised a seminar on how to improve your scientific writing skills.
Date: 6th of December 2017 from 8:30 - 12:30
Writing and publishing of research papers is an essential part in scientists’ day-to-day activities. But how do you write and publish papers that make an impact? In this half-day interactive seminar, Dr. Dan Csontos will impart strategies for writing and publishing papers that are not only found and read, but understood, and found meaningful and influential by readers. The seminar will touch upon the importance of scientific storytelling, a step-by-step approach to craft scientific stories for publication, and insights into the editorial processes at scientific journals in general, and the so-called high-impact journals in particular.
Workshop leader: Dan Csontos is the Editorial Director at Elevate Scientific. He has a PhD in physics, and has previously been a science editor with Nature and Nature Physics, and a science editor and project manager for Macmillan Science Communications.

Wednesday 8th of March 2017, 8.30-12.30, at Belfragesalen BMC D15, Klinikgatan 32, Lund.
Future Faculty, WINGS and Career Centre Medical Faculty invite you to a seminar on how to write a successful grant application. Dr. Dan Csontos, who has experience with applications for funding from Swedish and European funders, such as Vetenskapsrådet (VR), Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, European Research Council (ERC) and Horizon2020 will discuss three key aspects for writing successful grant applications – content, structure, and language. He will elaborate on the makeup of successful grant applications in general, and those aimed to the Swedish Research Council (VR) in particular, and provide guidance on how to structure grant applications to maximise the chance of a favourable review. We have also assembled a panel debate with experienced reviewers from VR and other major granting agencies representing LTH, Science and Medicine, who will discuss the ins and outs of what goes on in the selection of successful applicants.
