For doctoral researchers. Ideally, participants should have started their research project already and be at the stage of writing, in order to take the most advantage from the workshop.



With discipline and commitment, scientific writing is a skill that can be learned and mastered. In this workshop, Andrea Sanchini will work with participants to develop a set of "how-to" strategies for writing journal articles and theses, and for increasing writing productivity.



  • Common challenges and misunderstandings in scientific writing
  • How to organize the flow of information
  • The sections of a scientific article
  • Different types of writers
  • The stages of the writing process
  • Techniques and software available to increase writing productivity
  • Clear scientific writing
  • Motivational tools to increase writing productivity
  • How to reduce procrastination and perfectionism
  • Teamwork with co-authors and supervisors


Further Information

During the workshop, participants can draft part of their current writing project, for example a journal article or a thesis (1 to 2 pages). Therefore, participants are asked to decide in advance which writing task they want to do during the workshop.


If there are free spots, we also allow postdocs to participate.


For workshops held online, participation is allowed under the following conditions: a working camera that is turned on and a microphone to allow active participation in discussions and group work. Headphones must also be used to protect other participants from office eavesdroppers. In this context, we would also like to refer to the rules for digital courses at Freie Universität Berlin (Code of Conduct).
