Writing and Communicating Scientific Research

Results of scientific research can be communicated either through written papers and/or thesis or through oral presentations in the form lectures or scientific talks. The former is comparatively tough as it required technical skills, organization and in-depth knowledge of the subject being communicated. Researchers and students and in certain cases even professionals of high caliber some time face difficulties of how to effectively communicate what they did, why and how they did and what they have achieved. Student and researchers face this difficulty more than anybody else. It is particularly for this community and for other professionals (in general) who are engaged in scientific communications, that a course is being arranged with a focus on how effectively, clearly and perfectly one can communicate to others: the results of their scientific endeavors, be it a thesis research or a scientific paper to be sent to a peer review journal.
