Speed Up Your Writing Process: Outlining the Scientific Paper
Learn to effectively use MS Word and other outliners to organize your writing process and smooth your collaboration with co-authors. Integrate guidelines, notes, and citations into your outline to cut your writing your time in half. Outlining is a useful skill for writing scientific papers in English and makes the writing process more efficient. It's commonly taught in North America, but rarely taught in Europe. The outlining process begins long before the article is written, and helps scientists keep track of completed and pending writing tasks. This course demonstrates the use of the outline function of your word processor to structure and continuously revise the format of your paper (or other scientific documents) from first steps to final revisions. It will also be useful when you respond to reviewers.
