The Summer School of Scientific Communication is organized by a group of journal editors with experience in teaching in scientific writing. The Summer School is the continuation of international writing workshops organized by the editors of the Croatian Medical Journal and the editors of other medical journals such as The Lancet, BMJ, JAMA and Annals of Internal Medicine.
The Summer School is targeted to doctoral students and young postdoctoral fellows from all scientific fields who are preparing their first manuscript or would like to improve their skills in writing and publishing in scientific journals. Participants are required to bring a draft of their manuscripts to the Summer School.
Summer School in Split is unique in its multidisciplinary approach, both in the composition of its teaching team, selection of the participants and the topics of their manuscripts. Previous Summer Schools attracted young researchers from all over Europe and from different research fields, ranging from medicine and biotechnology to law, archaeology, linguistics and art history.
Another unique feature of the Summer School is the focus on practical work with participants’ manuscripts, in which formal lectures are arranged around Paper Clinic, where lecturers work through the manuscript with a small group of participants.

Experience from past Summer Schools:
“A very valuable experience! One of the most useful education courses since the beginning of my PhD study. I would recommend it to all doctoral students as a crucial starting point in their careers.”
“The main benefit of the workshop for me was the new knowledge gained on the publication process. The second great benefit for me were the contacts established with other young scientists from different areas. I have made plans with 4 participants for future collaboration”
"The most valuable aspect of the workshop was hearing other’s researchers experiences in publishing, mentoring work on my manuscript, seeing our mentors’ enthusiasm about research and teaching, informal discussions.“
