FIRN is working with member institutions to host skills workshops aimed at Early Career Researchers.
Workshop: Crafting the crucial “front-end” of a paper
Monday 7 September, 1pm (AEST)
People are busy and impatient. It is therefore crucial to get your paper’s story across in the abstract and introduction because many readers won’t read past those sections. This workshop will provide guiding principles for writing those crucial “front-end” sections, provide examples of good practice, and discuss a few rules of thumb to improve your paper’s chance of success.
