Aim: This short, six-session course for scientists intends to visit the research article, considering issues before writing, and how these elements are then reflected in actual published research articles in your disciplines. You will be asked to apply these considerations to your own proposed writing and research articles.
Preparation/Materials: You need to select two journal article/s of your choice, which you consider as being well written, and which are relevant to your research. You will also need to bring any writing related to the research you are doing currently, or maybe a recently finished paper. Essentially, something you can reflect on after discussions in class on the themes below.
Outcome: You will be more aware of the expectations that research publication demands, and will be able to identify more precisely how writers approach and deal with these expectations.
