This three day writing workshop will introduce students to complexities of writing research papers, with a view to making the process easier and more transparent. Day one will concentrate on three interrelated problems in writing research: mastering the style of a scientific research paper; how to be an efficient writer and understand how and why writers get blocked; and finally tips for reviewing the literature and developing critical thinking.
Day two breaks down the research paper into its constituent parts and unpick their structures. These structures can then be used to model a plan and write the article. Finally, day three takes an overview of the whole process of writing and publishing a research paper, including co-authoring, drafting, editing, and peer review. Importantly, this finally day will also discuss the importance of the post-publication life of your papers, such as their impact and social networking your results.
