Pressure on scientific publications has become significant in the academic world. For junior researchers, writing a scientific paper is paramount to anything else and needs to be
mastered very quickly during their early carrier stage.
Usually what is offered by universities, however, is very generic training courses and not specifically tailored for design researchers. On the other hand, since nowadays junior researchers write so many papers, the demand for competent peer reviewers is enormous. However, junior researchers do not know how to write good reviews and senior researchers often do not have time to do good reviews. From the viewpoints of both authors and editors, reviews must be effective and efficient, i.e., useful, constructive and concise.
This paper presents a tutorial on scientific writing in design, based on a workshop that took place during ICED11 (16.08.2011) in Lyngby/Copenhagen, Denmark.
