Dear colleagues,

I found a Guide to Scientific Writing that it might be interesting for you, at the following link:


"It contains a series of educational articles on how to design and write scientific research papers for publication. These articles will help authors, educators, researchers, training program directors, and other professionals write more clearly and effectively, thereby improving their chances for success.

Part 1. The Title Says It All
Part 2. The Abstract and the Elevator Talk: A Tale of Two Summaries
Part 3. "It was a cold and rainy night": Set the Scene with a Good Introduction
Part 4. Who, What, When, Where, How, and Why: The Ingredients in the Recipe for a Successful Methods Section
Part 5. Show Your Cards: The Results Section and the Poker Game
Part 6. If an IRDAM Journal Is What You Choose, Then Sequential Results Are What You Use
Part 7. Put Your Best Figure Forward: Line Graphs and Scattergrams
Part 8. Bars and Pies Make Better Desserts than Figures
Part 9. Bring Your Best to the Table
Part 10. The Discussion Section: Your Closing Argument
Part 11. Giving Credit: Citations and References
Part 12. How to Write a Rave Review
Part 13. Top 10 Tips for Responding to Reviewer and Editor Comments
Part 14. Passing the Paternité Test"

My best wishes,


Rodrigo Filipe

Dear Iulia,


thanks you very much for the suggestion.

It's a very good reference and I'm sure the other participants will appreciate you having shared it.

May I invite you to share this in the EPIET toolbox article of FEM Wiki? I think the enrichment of the FEM Wiki articles has a longer longevity as this classroom environment.


This article is open to public, so all participants of this course can access it for more tools and contribute to its enrichment.

Regards and wishes of successful abstract submissions :)

Dear Rodrigo,

Thank you for your reply.

I posted the link, as a comment of the "20 tips for good abstracts", here: https://wiki.ecdc.europa.eu/training/epiet/f/1476/t/1091

I hope it is OK. 

Kind regards,


Rodrigo Filipe

Dear Iulia,

Thanks again for sharing.

I looked at your comment in FEM Wiki and made some formatting to make it easier to read. It's not your fault, it's the editor for comments available in FEM wiki which cleans all formatting.

I hope other will appreciate you sharing this.
