Background and Rationale
      The Thai FETP trainees write reports on their outbreak responses in the Thai language. However, most of the articles in international journals are written in English. The Thai FETP would like to submit the trainee’s manuscripts to international scientific journals for publication. Since English is the second language of the Thai trainees, most trainees need assistance to strengthen their scientific writing. A scientific editor will revise the trainees’ reports so that it will be in a format that scientific journals will consider for publication.

    - Editor will assisting Thai and international FETP trainees on
      a) submit a manuscript that a scientific, peer-reviewed journal will review and
