SLS, JNU Workshop on Scientific Writing and Bioethics, 20-21st September

Two-day workshop on Scientific Writing and Bioethics

20-21st September 2012

at Auditorium, School of Life Sciences, JNU

About: Scientific writing is an integral part of the research profession. All forms of scientific journalism needs to be carefully manuscripted when it comes to ethics and precise reporting, but this makes them monotonous and boring and, therefore, difficult to retain in memory. The workshop will provide an insight to the audiences and the participants on 'how to make scientific writing ethical and easy to grasp' at the same time. Eminent speakers from some of the best institutes of the nation are here to share some of their best views and experiences on "Scientific writing and Bioethics".
