Grasping the subtleties of manuscript writing can be a frustrating path, lined with rejected papers. Written guidelines cannot easily be translated into practice, but publishing is a critical part of a researcher’s career. This interactive workshop seeks to build skills in scientific writing and provides practical information to support new and early-career HIV researchers in successfully submitting their manuscripts to peer-reviewed journals. By the end of the workshop, participants will know the key components of a scientific manuscript and would have completed short practical exercises. Participants also learn about the publication and peer-review processes and how to address ethical issues in scientific writing. The most common reasons why manuscripts are rejected are discussed, as well. Questions can be asked throughout the workshop. Hence, while targeted at less experienced authors, the workshop focuses on practical issues in scientific publishing, also of interest to more experienced researchers.
