*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.

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 18th for the tenth episode in this series – ‘Common grammatical and structural errors made by non-native English speakers’.


At Research Square, we edit hundreds of thousands of papers a year. In this session, we will discuss some of the most common grammatical and structural errors that are made when writing in English. With our help, you won’t make the same mistakes that other authors have made in the past. Stand on the shoulders of giants and soak up some of our tips and tricks for writing!


Some of the most common errors authors tend to make when writing in English, include:


  • Tenses and switches;


  • American versus British spelling conventions;


  • Inconsistencies in formatting and abbreviations, and;


  • Plagiarism, especially ‘self-plagiarism’.


We will discuss this – and much more – in our tenth 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!)
