English for Research Publication Purposes,

Scholarly Communication is a concise but comprehensive course on how to write research papers in English. The course will help the candidates gain a better understanding of the rhetorical conventions of English and the common challenges the candidates may face as an academic writer. The course provides instruction, exercises, structure, and deadlines needed to create a publishable paper. The aim of the course is to improve competence in scholarly communications by deepening knowledge of the core features of the scientific writing style. It presents and analyzes the unwritten rules of scientific writing, the ones candidates most likely never learned in academic writing. The course will enable the candidates to write clear, detailed and well-structured scientific texts appropriate to a suitable academic journal. In particular, they will develop an awareness of fundamental concepts of academic writing, such as contrastive rhetoric, logical organization, and argumentation. In addition, they will develop skills for self-editing and revision techniques, including editing for precision and clarity. They will also gain a deeper understanding of how to prepare a scientific paper using the IMRAD format. Finally, the candidates will develop an enhanced understanding of the concept of academic integrity and the ethics of scientific writing. The candidates will be able to overcome anxiety about academic publishing and get their research papers published in international journals.

What people are saying

academic writing

Although I have attended many online and life courses on scientific and academic writing there is always something new to learn and master.

I kind of wish it had more examples of language to use in academic writing, contrasting good and bad examples.Some of the quiz questions and final exam questions need some proofreading.

There are a number of useful guides for new researchers to learn how to structure, phrase, and approach academic writing.

Some of the material is overly subjective (giving rules for academic writing that are not necessarily applicable).

Finally, the course relies too heavily on academic writing for the hard sciences, rather than taking a broader approach, so some students may wish to keep this in mind when watching, as some advice may not be applicable to their own discipline.Overall, a recommended course for ESL academics, but could do with some improvement.

It was useful to know so many nuances 'bout how the academic writing works.Completely updated my knowledge.

Discovering many new things about academic writing articles.
