Edanz holds Author Success Workshop in Mexico

Edanz holds Author Success Workshop in Mexico


On 5 October 2015, Dr Daniel McGowan led an Edanz Author Success Workshop in Yucatan, Mexico, in collaboration with our publisher partner Springer.

Dr McGowan taught a packed audience in the Centro de Convenciones Yucatán Siglo XXI about how to publish in international biological and chemical journals at the 2015 EntrePares congress, organized by CONRICYT (Consorcio Nacional de Recursos de Información Científica y Tecnológica). This annual event aims to promote scientific communication skills among its 2500 delegates by bringing together researchers and postgraduate students of Mexico with international publishers.

Among the skills covered in the workshop were clear and concise writing, article structure, and how to submit a paper to an indexed international journal, including how to write an effective and professional cover letter to a chief editor. This Mexico event was the last of a South America workshop tour conducted by Edanz in collaboration with Springer, with visits made to Peru and Cuba on 28-29 September and 1-2 October, respectively.
