Learning how not to write an article is as important as learning how to write it! In this webinar Bert Blocken highlights 10 tips of what to avoid when writing your article. What to avoid includes taking the lazy route of plagiarism, overestimating your contribution and ignoring comments from editors and reviewers.

The webinar will demonstrate how a poorly written article can ruin the career of a researcher.
