Publications of research results is the currency in modern science. It might not be your favorite occupation, but it is a decisive one, strongly determining your future research and career opportunities. In this course, you will be introduced to the process of writing a scientific paper. In order to deepen and apply this knowledge, you will also actually produce a manuscript based on your research data (and one that might serve as the foundation for a journal submission).

A-Z of scientific writing:

- Developing a clear main message
- Priority setting in the writing process
- Structure and logical flow of the text
- Create meaningful graphics
- Memorable introduction and abstract
- Do's and Don'ts of AI Tools in writing
- How to develop a daily writing routine
- Efficient communication with co-authors

PLEASE NOTE: Given that this is a hands-on seminar, you need some (analyzed) data that can serve as the foundation for a journal article. Please also bring some scientific texts written by you (e.g. Bachelor or Master thesis, as well as any published or upcoming papers) to the seminar.


This workshop is part of the PIER Education Platform (PEP) for career, research and soft skills. The workshops in PEP are open for PhD students of the PIER Helmholtz Graduate School and its cooperation partners on Bahrenfeld Campus/DESY.

PEP is a cooperation of the PIER Helmholtz Graduate School, the Quantum Universe Research School QURS, and the Research School of the Hamburg Center for Ultrafast Imaging/Advanced Imaging of Matter CUI/AIM. PhD students from other affiliated research centers such as DASHH, the Collaborative Research Center SFB 925, the International Max Planck Research School for Ultrafast Imaging & Structural Dynamics IMPRS-UFAST, the Centre for Structural Systems Biology CSSB, and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory EMBL may also participate upon request.

Note: Your registration is pending until the final confirmation from the organisers, which will be e-mailed to you after the end of the registration deadline. The number of available places is limited to 14.
