• SCADEMIA: Workshops & Services for Authors

     Scientific work is evaluated by the number and quality  of publications in high-ranking journals. Improving the quality of scientific publications is crucial for scientists, institutes and  societies throughout the world. SCADEMIA improves the number and impact of your publications through training and support.

    Training and Tutoring

    At the core of SCADEMIA lies a series of workshops. These workshops are aimed at all scientists and are adapted to the level of the participants. The workshops are modular and recurring. Participants will practice through exercises. Upon request SCADEMIA can video the workshops and thus create an online resource for your institute.

    Short Courses & Workshops for Scientists: In-house or at Conferences

    The SCADEMIA courses are developed for various occasions: They might be held as short courses during conferences or they can be held in-house at academic institutions. A sample workshop schedule you may see here: SCADEMIA Schedule. Just recently we were asked by a large scientific society to develop a short version and here it is: SCADEMIA_Schedule_halfday.

    Workshops for Publishers

    In 2014 THOSS Media started a new workshop on “Effective Scientific Publishing”. The one-day workshop was held for the publishers of a mid-size scientific publishing house. The customized schedule can be seen here: Effective_Publishing.
