Succinct Scientific Writing

Our workshop is designed to help your team master the ins and outs of scientific writing technicalities.

Workshop Details

Workshop Description

The only thing more difficult than your team’s research is writing about it. But it doesn’t have to be. 

Scientific writing, whether a protocol, deviation report, or internal document, must be usable, readable, actionable and, above all, readable.

Too often, however, scientific documents are confusing, unfocused, and don’t meet the needs of the intended reader. That’s a huge miss because the research your team does is important.

The good news is that your team knows their stuff and therefore they can learn better strategies to write documents that convey the essence and nuances of their work effectively and confidently.

Workshop Aims

In our instructor-led, customized workshop, your team will learn strategies to write scientific reports and manuscripts that drive readers to the desired conclusions. Participants will have multiple opportunities to apply concepts while receiving real-time feedback from the instructor during this interactive workshop.

Your team will learn: 

  • Strategies to analyze and target the intended readers
  • The importance of planning (and how to do so effectively)
  • Techniques to emphasize important points
  • Best practices to write the various sections
  • Methodologies to drive readers to the desired conclusion

Drive the intended reader to the desired outcome

Participants will learn strategies to analyze and target their intended readers, including techniques to write for scientific and non-scientific readers.


Improve Clarity and Engagement

Your team will learn how to write sentences and paragraphs based on the science of readability studies and best practices to create reader engagement.

Crafting an engaging scientific document

Participants will learn how to write the various sections for maximum engagement using logic and science-based strategies.

Frequently asked questions

What’s the format of the onsite and virtual workshops?
Our workshops are engaging, highly interactive, and completely customized! We use micro-learning techniques, in-class exercises, and collaborative breakout sessions to ensure a robust learning experience.
The onsite workshops run from two to five days, depending on the level of complexity of the documents your team writes and how much practice they need. The virtual sessions are typically 10 hours offered in two-hour segments; however, that can vary, depending on team size, team writing skill, and type of workshop.
We customize the course to focus on the types of documents your team writes and the skills they need to improve. Since all of our courses are based on readability studies, we provide your team with the latest tools and techniques to help them plan, write, and revise more effectively and efficiently.
The workshop provides multiple opportunities for participants to apply the concepts to their own writing. Practice sessions range from two to five per day in an onsite workshop and one per two-hour virtual session, depending on the workshop chosen and type of documents discussed.
We provide coaching services; we also help clients develop templates, style guides, and other types of reference documents. And we offer a communication audit, which can help you pinpoint your team’s real writing and review issues.
