About the Workshop

As competition for external funding becomes more challenging, getting one's scholarly work successfully published is more important than ever. Dr. Gopen's approach is based on a single idea: learning to write for the reader allows the writer to control what readers learn.

This year, Dr. George Gopen will present this workshop in a SINGLE DAY format. Participants will register for EITHER Tuesday, July 9 OR Wednesday, July 10. As in past years, Dr. Gopen will also conduct hour-long, individualized consultations. ONLY faculty members who participate in the day-long event will have access to the individual consultation registration. Instructions will be sent to participants after their registration for the workshop is complete.

More about Dr. Gopen's original approach to scientific writing can be found in his article, The Science of Scientific Writing.

Sponsored by the IU School of Medicine Office of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development, the IUPUI Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, and the IUPUI Center for Teaching and Learning.
