--- Online workshop ---

This is a virtual workshop over three half-days!

The workshop will be held via the videoconferencing software Zoom. Further information on how to use the software will be provided to registered participants.



The course is given by Dr. John Dixon, Libra Communications Training, Bishop's Stortford, UK.


Workshop description

During the first two half-days, we cover the following: basic writing style; refining your style; being concise and correct (including scientifically relevant grammar and punctuation issues); writing manuscripts and abstracts; and preparing figures and tables.

During the third half-day, we discuss planning, revising and proofreading your work, and consider the publication process: authorship, journal selection, submission and peer review.

Using the Zoom platform, this workshop comprises short lectures, exercises, brainstorming in breakout rooms and an open invitation to ask questions, express opinion and share experience.

Comments about workshops by John Dixon from participants:

  • Dr. Dixon did an excellent job as an instructor. The handouts were extremely helpful and handy. I would definitely recommend this course to my peers.
  • This workshop has by far been the best I"ve ever attended as a PhD student. The trainer was extremely engaging and presented the material with such enthusiasm. I learned a lot from this workshop, from writing scientifically to abstract/poster/presentations. Loved it - highly recommended!

  • John is a great, charming and very sensible teacher and definitely knows what he is talking about. He definitely showed the enthusiasm during the course he was mentioning to be the key element. The handouts/exercises were brilliant, in a simple and straightforward way. The glossary on writing may become invaluable important for future manuscripts.

  • The workshop is exactly what is supposed to be: Training on scientific communication. The instructor was excellently prepared and was able to adapt to the audience"s needs. I would definitely recommend it to anyone working in the science field.

  • John is an excellent teacher and in addition to being really informative, the course was a lot of fun. Definitely recommendable.

  • John is very experienced and it is more fun and relevant given that he has a scientific background. Strongly enjoyed these 3 days and will recommend this course to my peers.

  • John is using magic tricks for PhD students to artistically open up. Very rare, very useful. I think that"s what we all, as scientists, lack.

  • Very competent and lovely trainer; it was a lot of fun! He provides a plenty of material that I will definetly use later in my scientific career.
