Aim and content
This is a generic course. This means that the course is reserved for PhD students at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences at UCPH. Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at the Graduate School, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. After the enrolment deadline, available seats will be allocated to the waiting list.

The course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School). All other participants must pay the course fee.

Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1. define the purpose of their article
2. select relevant article content
3. structure article content
4. phrase article content in an appropriate academic language

Publication of research results in scientific journals is one among several important means of dissemination within the field of medical research. Writing the first scientific article is often demanding and a big challenge. The purpose of the course is to help PhD students with a medical background to start the writing process well by introducing process and phrasing in scientific article writing. The course participants will be introduced to the purpose of the article, writing methods and processes as well as how to select relevant article content and subsequently how to structure it. The course participants will be introduced to academic English and recommendations from editors of scientific journals will be part of the program. Continuously there will be time to work with one’s own article and integrate what is learned in one’s own material. The teaching methods includes traditional lectures, individual exercises and group teaching.

PhD students, primarily with a medical background.
