12000 words – a toolkit for science students

Skills development sponsored by TRACHDAS Thesis Training, a subsidiary of Scientiic Writers Ltd.

Scientific Writing Skills

Our online courses are currently being updated but you can still access the original audio-based online courses here. (A note about browsers: if you use Firefox it will through up a security warning – this can be safely ignored and you can click to proceed.)

The updated courses will be available on a new Moodle platform giving us more flexibility to provide improved content and better user experience. These should be available by May 2020 so check back for updates.

Before that though, here are some tips on good places to start if you are looking to improve your scientific writing skills:

Plagiarism – a short article to help you with your assignments.

Reference Managers – getting started with Mendeley and links to tutorials/support.

Improving language and communication skills – for University of Edinburgh students wishing to improve their English language skills. For all other students, check your university site for similar pages.
