Editing Your Own Work
Nearly all writing can benefit from editing. Yet few of us can regularly enlist professional editors. In this webinar, Barbara Gastel, MD, MPH, who teaches science editing and has edited the Council of Science Editors periodical, will present approaches, tips, and resources for editing one’s own work. The webinar will feature checklists for editing one’s papers and proposals before submission. It also will identify common writing problems to remedy, provide suggestions for non-native users of English, and list items to check for when proofreading. Throughout, examples and advice from CDC will be integrated. Join us for guidance in refining your writing to communicate best and win reviewers’ and editors’ approval.
