We recently conducted a four-day workshop for 16 PhD students on how to write scientific papers. Many nationalities were represented with a huge variety of communication and feedback styles. Apparently tedious disciplines such as writing processes, rhetorical issues, grammar and text structure were addressed. It was not tedious at all. The course scored 4.8 out of 5 on average. It was a highly rewarding course for many reasons. One of them had less to do with writing and much more to do with cross-cultural communication: in the course of the four days, Tanzanian, Chinese, Polish and Danish PhD students would discuss their own scientific texts with their fellow participants, respectfully and constructively. Demonstrable improvements were made, and invaluable relationships were established across cultures and personalities. Indeed a rewarding experience!
