Introduction to Scientific Publishing & How to Read a Paper

(online soft-skills training, 11. & 12.3.2021)

This joint workshop dealt with two key competencies for early stage researchers:
understanding the publishing system, and digesting the scientific literature. It has provided  new researchers with a solid grounding in how the scientific publishing system works, and has explored the challenges that publishing scientists face, such as authorship, peer review, and impact metrics. It has then introduced the ESRs to some essential concepts and practical tools for gathering, managing, processing, and summarising evidence in the scientific literature.


• The publishing process, authorship, and conflicts of interest
• The publishing landscape, open access, and impact metrics
• The peer-review system
• Searching for and managing your literature
• Sections of a paper - finding key information
• How to read a paper – extracting key information
