Scientific Writing Course from TEPHINET

A free Scientific Writing Training course is available for Junior-level scientists, Field Epidemiology Training Program participants, and general public interested in scientific writing. The course can be undertaken at anytime online.

This scientific writing course guides learners through the process of writing and publishing an original research manuscript (called a “scientific paper” throughout this course).

The course originated as a three-day scientific writing workshop for global Field Epidemiology Training Program residents and emerging authors. Materials were converted to an e-learning course to expand reach and increase flexibility and convenience for learners. The course includes both infectious and non-communicable disease examples.
