Writing is an essential area of skill development for researchers, but it can be enormously challenging and time-consuming. Key considerations include technical clarity and accuracy, organization and logical exposition, grammar and mechanics, conciseness, and iterative editing and improvement.
This session will address each of these topics and highlight practical strategies for writing effectively in a research context.

The IHRP Research and Professional Development Brown Bag Conservations, usually held on the third Wednesday of the month, is organized by Dr. DuBois.

These sessions are intended primarily for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and early investigators at the Institute for Health Research and Policy; however, all in the health and social sciences are welcome.
