This training is targeted to writing papers in the above formats.

As a general guide, you will need a minimum average of 3 hours per day for 3 weeks (i.e., a minimum of 63 hours in total) to complete a high-quality draft of your paper that is ready for feedback from your co-authors

Specifically, you will need to show your co-author(s) the draft display items (e.g., figures and tables) that you plan to include in your paper, as well as your draft and then refined take-home message for your paper, and you will need their agreement that you are on the right track. This is best achieved in one to three face-to-face or video meetings with your co-authors, but can also be achieved via email communications. It will be helpful to schedule some time with your co-author(s) for the first 10 days of the Zoom series to help ensure you get the strategic feedback you need.

We will let you know if your expression of interest is approved within 3 working days after submission of this form.
