I will be conducting a workshop on Scientific Writing in Venture Centre, NCL Innovation Park in Pune from 13-18 Feb 2017. The workshop will focus on building the capacities of PhDs, Post Docs and early career scientists for writing better scientific papers, project reports and grant proposals.
Having built up a reasonably good team that can now report on contemporary Indian science through a column titled Science Last Fortnight in Current Science, I am now shifting my attention to getting Indian scientists to write better papers.
Scientific papers from Japan and China are somehow more readable than the papers written by most Indian scientists. This series of workshops is an attempt to improve the quality of scientific writing published by Indian scientists.
Writing grant proposals is the other area that scientists will need to become better at, given the limitations of funding available for doing research.
