*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 July 4th for the sixth episode in this series – ‘Topic sentences: What are they?’
Effective English sentences are short, with information clearly presented and word count kept to a minimum. Avoid unnecessary words, phrases, and punctuation.
In this session, we'll cover tips for effective writing and introduce the concept of topic sentences – sentences where only one idea only is presented.
We will cover:
- What a topic sentence is and how to write one
- Where to put key information in English sentences to emphasise (and de-emphasise) your point
-The ideal length of a sentence
-Verbs, nouns, adjectives and adverbs.
We will discuss this – and much more – in our eight 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.

Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform. Clicks to view the full text will be directed to the publisher website, where only users with subscriptions or access through their institution are able to view the full article.
