Learn how to apply three simple templates to write
so you can present your results clearly, save time and effort, and create a solid foundation for your thesis/manuscript
...even if you have little or no confidence with scientific writing!
I’m hosting this free 5-day challenge masterclass so you can write polished figure and table titles.
If you’re a science student, you might feel scared to present your new data to your supervisor and lab mates. Do you worry that your supervisor’s red pen is going to be all over your work? Are you afraid the other students will think you’re clueless?
If you’re further on in your research career, you might waste lots of time and become frustrated when submitting your research to journals. Maybe you don’t have anyone to ask for advice on scientific writing? Or you wish someone could just show you a simple system?
I’ve edited thousands of papers in biology, life sciences, medicine/allied subjects and other STEM subjects. I know most researchers experience the same struggles with scientific writing. I’ve been a PhD student and post doc…and I used to feel the same worry, frustration and pain as you.
I know they are only a small part of a manuscript, but good figure and table titles are a solid foundation to good scientific writing.
Learning how to write good titles at the early stages of your studies will save you time, give you confidence and you’ll not be frustrated by having to fix your titles when you start to write your thesis.
More importantly, if your figure and table titles are clear, then it is easier for examiners and journal reviewers to understand your research!
After helping hundreds of researchers to publish their research, I have identified three simple templates for writing polished figure and table titles.
I use these simple templates every day in my editing work; these templates save time and effort as they help me write effective, polished figure and table titles without thinking.
I’ll walk you through the simple templates in a short email, a live training and Q&A/feedback session each day of this 5-day challenge. By doing only 10-15 minutes work per day, you’ll be able apply these templates to write polished titles for most figures or tables.

I look forward to seeing you in the challenge!
...to help you clearly present your experimental, basic, applied or quantitative research in biology, medicine and the life sciences (or closely related STEM subjects such as chemistry and physics)
The six components that form the basis of effective titles (and also the three simple templates).
A basic template that works for most images (e.g., microscopy images, spectra, gels), as well as descriptive and statistical tables.
A simple approach that works for almost any figure or table, regardless of whether the data shows a clear trend or not.
The 'champion template' that helps you describe your results with confidence and makes it easy to understand your work.
The only rule you need to know to decide whether your figures, tables and legends/footnotes are clear and complete.
