After many rounds of successful and effective online course on research and research writing, the AuthorAid delighted to announce that enrolment is open on our latest free online course ‘Research Writing in the Sciences’.

Course duration: 5 to 8 weeks, depending on the topics you choose

Main topics covered in the course: 

  • Core topics (weeks 1 to 5) – Literature review, publication ethics, making a targeting the right journals, writing and publishing a research paper.
  • Optional topics: (weeks 6 to 8) Writing a grant proposal and Communicating Research Outside Academia (learners can choose either subject or both)


The course is designed for researchers in developing countries, particularly those working in a scientific field (life sciences / natural sciences / other related fields). It is suitable for early career researchers, or those with limited experience in publishing papers in reputable peer-reviewed journals.


Course dates: 4th September to 29th October 2018 and you can enroll before the start date.


Complete information about the course along with enrolment instructions is available on the INASP Moodle website: https://moodle.inasp.info/enrol/index.php?id=142. You will need to create an INASP Moodle account if you don’t already have one. Please follow the instructions carefully (you may need to click on the above link again after registering your account).

Please note that although this is an open course, we may have to limit enrolment due to server capacity. We suggest that you enroll in the course as soon as possible if you are interested.

INASP designs and runs capacity development activities that cater to both women and men’s interests and needs. We use methods that increase active participation and an inclusive learning environment, adopting attitudes and behaviors that value differential experiences and perspectives and ensuring listening and respect for each other’s experiences and views.
