Publishing scientific research widens access to information and thus influences future research and conservation. It also adds credibility to research because papers must be peer reviewed. However, publication rates of scientists from African countries are low compared to the amount of research they do.
This course is designed for early career African conservation scientists who are actively involved in research within non-governmental organisations, universities and government research departments. The participants will be invited to attend the 2017 Student Conference in Conservation Science, the leading annual forum for young conservation scientists, held in Cambridge immediately after the course (28-30 March).
