Course details / IAS Scientific Writing[e]Education

About this course

Health[e]Foundation offers the IAS Scientific Writing[e]Education e-learning course in collaboration with the International AIDS Society (IAS), authored by the former editors of the Journal of the International AIDS Society, Drs. Shirin Heidari and Mirjam Curno. Often, less experienced authors, non-English native speakers and those from resource-limited settings are at a disadvantage when writing abstracts and articles. This leads to their underrepresentation at conferences and in journal publications. The aim of this course is to support researchers to successfully disseminate their findings in order to contribute to our global knowledge base and to strengthen the skills of young and/or less-experienced authors.

Who is this course for?

Everyone who would like to write and submit an abstract or manuscript.

What you will learn

The e-learning program consists of four modules on writing a conference abstract; how to write and submit a research manuscript; and how to navigate the editorial and peer review process. It includes exercises and examples. The first module has been made available free of charge.
