For courses on writing of research papers

3-day course, Oslo 2019: This course is useful for all young researchers and PhD students to be a critical reader and organized writer. It focuses on critical reading and  planning for writing manuscripts; especially working on outlining of your paper  will ease your writing, help you to be consistent and to provide proper context. I personally learned useful information during these three days. From an anonymous post-doc at UiO

3-day course, Tromsø 2018: This course is very informative and points to issues that are generally overlooked, ignored or not thought of. Jaya Kumari, associate professor at Norges Fiskerihøgskole, University of Tromsø

1-week course, Bergen 2017: The participants thought the course was very relevant. There was a good balance between lectures, group work, time for discussion and questions. They especially liked concrete advice and tips that they can use directly in their writing, and the variation between seeing the big picture and small details like grammar and choice of words. The course met their expectations and they would recommend it to others. Associate professor Una Ørvim, Institute for Global Public Health and Primary Care, University of Bergen

1-week course, Oslo 2016: Very good exercise in disposition of the writing process, clarifying your findings and making them interesting to read. Gastroenterologist Ingrid Prydz Berset, Ålesund sykehus, 2016
