The increasing demand for academic research and publications felt by academic institutions and their faculty alike has motivated a series of measures in order to improve not only the quantity of research projects, but also the quality of such research and how it is shared with the scientific and academic community. Research has become a cornerstone for universities as they have been evaluated in terms of number and relevance of research projects and academic publications. As a result, Universities have also come to the realization of the importance of such research; however, it is not only the research that matters, but also how its findings are delivered to the scientific community.
It is now that training calls for investment. Faculty and researchers need to be appropriately prepared for field, experimental or classroom research in addition to their preparation to put their findings on paper and share them with the world. Globalization and academic mobility have made the academia realize that the production of knowledge must be shared at a global scale; it is now that English takes its role as the lingua franca and the language of science and knowledge. Thus, the necessity of improving faculty’s handle of the language and its academic skills have been deemed essential.

Scientific writing in English
PUCE has offered several training courses on Research Methodology and Writing in Spanish with very good acceptance from its staff. The demand for further and more widespread research calls for additional-specific training in Academic-Scientific Writing in English. This is what motivates the necessity of this workshop-based course: help researchers, teachers and students improve their academic writing skills so that their research can be published in English.
