Creative publishing in community ecology

The course is taught by a group of tutors which includes Jan Leps, Francesco de Bello, Lars Goetzenberger, Jan Hrcek and usually, one of postdocs or visiting scientists.
  • In the creative publishing course, initial presentations provide students with information on publication strategy, and on basics of writing scientific publications. Nevertheless, the hands-on experience is the main topic of the course. Thus, students are given data, and the aim of the group (depending on the number of registered students, there can be also more groups) is, with the support of the tutors, to analyze the data, draw conclusions, and write a manuscript, which is then submitted to a journal. As a rule, one of the students takes lead and is the first author of the publication. Previous runs of the course resulted in quite interesting publications in well respected journals:
