Critical Thinking through Clear Writing ~ Clear Writing through Critical Thinking
A science writing course that will help you write logical, precise, and interesting articles about your research
Writing Science Articles 2 (REDM 710)
Register NOW for the 2011 winter session of
Writing Science Articles 2, a 3-credit writing
course for graduate students. This course will help you think
critically about your data and write logically about your findings.
Writing Science Articles 2 (REDM 710), an advanced
seminar course, teaches Science graduate students the necessary
skills for writing and publishing in their profession.
Students learn techniques for developing logical arguments
and balanced scientific texts. This will be accomplished by
deconstructing their own and other students' writing with
particular attention focused on the Introduction and Discussion
section of the manuscript. Students will learn to structure their
manuscripts to ensure that the major findings receive appropriate
attention, distinguishing them from secondary, supporting data in
both the Results and Discussion section.
An editor of a major scientific journal or member of the Editorial Board will explain the peer-review process, the role of reviewers and editors, what editors look for in publishable manuscripts, and how to respond to reviewers' comments when revising and resubmitting manuscripts.
Writing Science Articles 2 (REDM 710) meets throughout the winter term on Tuesdays (CRN 5841) or Thursdays (CRN 9323) from 10:05-1:05.
The class meets in the Redpath Museum, Hodgson Seminar Room.
