Writing scientific papers is a skill most students practice at University, but writing the papers comprehensible often is neglected. "Comprehensible Writing" is a skill every scientist should have. This way of writing can be trained and this is the subject matter of this project. In cooperation with the Faculty of Knowledge and Business Engineering it was worked on the implementing of online training assignments. They also designed an evaluation system, which can be applied on every piece of written paper to improve quality and enhance comprehensible writing.
