KurzbeschreibungScientists in the life sciences and chemistry need to deal with vast amounts of information (books, journals, databases, social web etc.). Students will learn how to efficiently and effectively retrieve, store and manage scientific information from several free and proprietary information resources. The process of scientific writing and publishing will also be discussed and demonstrated
