Writing for Publication: Session 1 & 2

Do you need to publish your research in English? Our blended-learning courses will guide you through the writing process and show you that the secret of effective writing lies in careful rewriting, rethinking, and sharing your text with others. You will have to write regularly in the course and your effort will be rewarded with in-depth individualized feedback.

Upcoming course dates: Feb 26, 2024 – Jun 14, 2024



How will you learn?

This is a blended-learning course, combining online instruction (via Moodle) with several face-to-face (or Zoom) meetings.

The philosophy that guides our teaching:

  • you write about your own research
  • you learn to analyze and critique texts written by others
  • you produce texts that you actually need (e.g. an abstract, introduction, discussion/conclusion)
  • you receive in-depth feedback (written or audio-video feedback) on the structure, logic and language of your texts
  • you revise and rewrite your text

We view writing as a tool to think and communicate, and this perspective guides the feedback we give. Primarily, we focus on the content, logic and structure of the text instead of grammar and language structures. In this sense, our course is unique and differs from most other courses offered in the Czech Republic.

Who is this course for?

Doctoral students, researchers, as well as Master or Bachelor students with upper-intermediate or advanced knowledge of English (B2-C2 level). The courses are in English and take place online, so they can also serve students living outside of the Czech Republic.

Is it time-demanding?

Free of charge for the employees of the Czech Academy of Sciences who only pay the course registration fee (500,- CZK). Everyone else pays 7200,- CZK per course cycle.

We offer the course in two consecutive sessions (Session 1 and Session 2), each lasting 15 weeks. Meeting the course requirements will take roughly 2-4 hours of your time per week, which you can schedule according to your own needs as long as you meet the course deadlines (tasks are due typically twice a week).

How much does it cost?


Course dates

We typically open both sessions (WriPub 1 and 2) each semester. The Fall semester usually starts in early October, the spring semester in February.
