The third in this series, NIeCer 103: Scientific Writing in Health Research, is a course on scientific writing for health researchers. Communicating research findings to the scientific community is the responsibility of every researcher. Our course will explain the fundamental concepts in drafting a scientific manuscript to effectively communicate research findings. It will provide an overview of the steps and principles involved in organizing a manuscript logically and sequentially within a structure. It will also introduce writing styles and formatting guidelines to be adhered to while drafting a scientific manuscript.
