*Effective writing & publishing in English: Be the best you can be! *


Welcome to Research Square’s Bootcamp for scientific writing! This course will provide you with essential tips and tricks to enable you to achieve your writing aspirations by publishing your research in high-impact journals. Although this presentation emphasises early career researchers, it contains information useful to all interested in writing for publication. Follow the Research Square profile to receive notifications for upcoming events.


Join us every week at 9am BST / 8am GMT! Over a series of short live event training sessions encouraging feedback and hands-on learning, our course will take you through the five stages of academic paper writing, publishing, and impact.


Come along at 9am BST/8am GMT on June 27th for the seventh episode in this series – ‘Common mistakes when writing in English ’.


We edit thousands of papers a week at Research Square through our professional services arm, AJE. This means that we've been able to summarize the most common English language mistakes that authors tend to make.


Tune in to this training session for a summary of some of the typical English language mistakes and how to avoid them in your own paper writing.


We will cover:


- The use of tenses in academic writing


- British versus American English in academic articles


- Past tense and present tense: when to use each one?


- How to ensure your work sounds like it was written by a native speaker


- Active versus passive voice (when, and when not, to use)


We will discuss this – and much more – in our seventh session at 9am BST / 8am GMT.


Research Square is a multidisciplinary preprint and author services platform. You can share your work early in the form of a preprint, gain feedback from the community, and use our tools and services to improve your paper. You can also learn about breakthroughs in your field and find potential collaborators. We will show you why this is an important career move, and can help with your networking skills.


We have a new FREE AI Digital Editing service: (22% more accurate than Grammarly!)
