This course will be tailored for Sciences Academia and will be centred around preparation for writing an article including bibliographical searching, personal library building and CV building. The course will tackle the main topic of writing the article itself- deconstructing the article into its component parts and giving clear advice on each part of the paper.

This session will also cover selecting the right journal, going through the submission process, writing the cover letter and interaction with the reviewers. Finally, Dr. Sharman will add to writing an article with the introduction to writing a research project that could form the basis of a future course.


This course is ideal for:

  • Academic researchers, from all Egyptian Universities, currently writing a research paper
  • Established researchers who wish to improve the article writing
  • PhD students who aim to begin publishing scholarly papers in the immediate future
  • Library and information professionals who provide classes to faculty on this topic
