"Information" savvy in just 10 hours – by taking the course 529-0195-00L.

In the course you will learn how to effectively retrieve, critically judge, analyze and manage published scientific information – important skill sets in chemistry and life sciences where scientists need to deal with vast amounts of information.

The course also covers scientific writing & communication and state-of-the-art technologies for analysis such as text mining.

The course – with practical examples – is not an overview of databases nor an in-depth database training but maps the cycle of the scientific research processes with the corresponding processes of information and knowledge management.

A short introductory video can be found here (mp4 8MB).

More information about the course (taught in English), which has been explicitly developed for students of the Life Science Zurich Graduate School, can be found in the course catalogue of the ETH Zurich (Doctoral and Post-Doctoral Courses of the D-CHAB, 529-0195-00L).
