The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) Training Center conducted a workshop to help scientists and researchers develop their skills in communicating scientific information. The five-day workshop is designed to provide participants know-how on writing and revising manuscripts and familiarity with the guidelines of scientific writing and the peer review process.
The course was attended by sixteen participants, mostly IRRI scientists, scholars, and collaborators, from Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Philippines, and Sri Lanka. Maria Socorro Arboleda, senior specialist at the Training Center, coordinated the workshop.
The workshop was held on 2-6 March at MS Swaminathan Hall, IRRI Headquarters, Philippines.
The Training Center will also offer a basic scientific writing course for beginners on 9-13 November 2015. Interested applicants may now apply at http://training.irri.org/short-courses/how-to-apply-short-courses.
