ICMAB offers a course on "Essential Documentation Tools" for young researchers

Aiming at developing internal talent and meeting the needs of ICMAB's young scientists, ICMAB's Communication & Outreach and Library & Documentation services offer from January to May 2018 a course of 15 hours (divided in 5 modules of 3 hours each) on documentation and writing tools necessary for research: "Essential documentation tools for research - Practical guide for young ICMAB researchers".

Jan 23, 2018

The course is specially designed for the PhD and master students of the center, but is open to all the research staff, in general. 

The main objectives of the course are to offer practical, organized and systematized information, in the digital environment, of documentation issues in the specific field of ICMAB and the CSIC; and of writing and structuring research results in articles, theses, oral presentations and posters.

The course consists of five modules that can also be attended separately. Each of the five modules will be developed in two 90-minute sessions on two consecutive Thursdays; the first session of theoretical content and the second of more practical exercises, if possible. 

The total duration of the course is 15 hours. A CERTIFICATE OF ATTENDANCE, total or by modules, will be issued at the end of the course, for those attending 80 % of the total duration of the modules inscribed to. 

The modules are the following:

  • M1 SEARCHING: Searching documents, patents and reference managers.
  • M2. GATHERING: Methods for obtaining documents.
  • M3. WRITING: Guidelines for the writing of scientific articles and thesis.
  • M4. PUBLISHING: Choice of journals to publish, open access, publication and analysis guidelines, and production presentation.
  • M5. PRESENTING: Effective presentation and dissemination of research results in oral presentations or posters.

The registration of the course is done by sending an email to Anna May (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) indicating the desired modules, up to a week before each module. Each module will accept a maximum of 25 students.
