Workshop: Publish and share your data

Do you need to publish your data? In this workshop, you will get an overview of what to do. We will cover the process of how to publish your data if it will be available as open access, as well as what to do if you have sensitive data which cannot be made openly available. We will also discuss your options regarding where to store and share your data.

Workshop: Writing the compilation chapter (”kappa”) for your doctoral thesis

Writing the compilation chapter or “kappa” for your thesis will be different from anything you have written before, not least because you are writing for a different purpose and different audience than a research article. Additionally, you will be writing the kappa on your own, not with your research group as co-authors. So, what do you need to think about when you write your compilation chapter? Join us for a hands-on workshop during which we discuss structure, synthesis and writing techniques for the kappa. 

Workshop: Publish with impact – Journal indexing and impact factors

Research articles are commonly accessed through scientific databases that actively select which journals they cover, that is which journals they index. Publishing in a journal that is indexed by the main scientific databases is a good way to make sure that your article is visible and accessible. JIF, or journal impact factor, can also be helpful in assessing the influence of a certain journal. In this hands-on workshop we will guide you through how to check the indexing and impact factor of a journal. We will also discuss the connection between JIF, citations and scientific merit.

Workshop: Writing the popular science summary of your thesis

The ability to write about your research in a manner that is understandable and interesting to the general public is an essential skill for any scientist. The new KI guidelines for writing the doctoral thesis also strongly recommend you write a popular science summary in English. This workshop will provide you with models for and hands-on practice in adapting content, structure and style when writing the popular science summary in English for your doctoral thesis.

Presentation: Screening in Rayyan

Screening references for inclusion / exclusion is a vital, although sometimes daunting, task when writing a review. In this presentation we will demonstrate how to use the free, online tool Rayyan.
