Germán's Writing Tips

As a PhD student, one of my main concerns - besides research - is how to improve writing. In order to communicate our findings in research, we write reports, drafts, conference papers, journal papers, extended abstracts, and more. All this stuff requires good style, language improvement, following rules, developing writing skills, reading and practise. For that reason, I collected and published in this section some articles I came across and that I consider helpful.
