Communication and sound reasoning is a key factor in science and technology. Good peer communication is crucial for a successful career in research: reading published research, evaluating research submitted for publication, and writing in such a way that the results obtained become useful to the community. These tasks are not easy. This course focuses on them, and on a wide spectrum of related considerations about the professional life of the researcher.
