The Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) offers since 2014 a course on Transferable Skills for Engineering: Scientific Publication and Writing. It is expected that the course participants may publish articles with more success through a more systematic writing and more appropriate choice of the journal in terms of content and impact on the scientific community. Apart from writing and choosing the journal, the student will also be competent in terms of paper revisions and corrections. The student will gain knowledge of issues related to publishing, the type of journal, in which databases the paper is indexed, the impact of the paper, the basic steps of writing a scientific article, the proper search of articles published in bibliographic databases and the ethical issues of plagiarism.
