课程简介:

Scientific writing for both conferences and journals is essential for research-based graduate students. In the current practice, a starting young researcher often learns how to write a scientific paper by mimicking authors of published papers, which can be misleading. His supervisor then laboriously, and perhaps even painfully, corrects the first manuscript draft. Both parties can end up with extreme frustration.  Despite the importance of scientific writing, few universities have such a formal course that is specially designed for top conference and journal publications. The purpose of this course is to fill this gap. In this course (32 lecture hours), assuming that the students have intermediate-level of English language skills, we will cover the following elements of writing a scientific paper: essential units of a research paper and how to write abstract, introduction, methods, results and discussion; common English usage mistakes to avoid; effective writing principles; how to construct strong proses; how to write correct mathematical expressions and illustrate scientific results. We will also cover important topics such as how to communicate with the editors, as well as ethics associated with research publications.

Principles of Effective Writing a) Common grammar and usage errors b) Basic principles of effective writing c) Effective punctuations in scientific writing d) Commonly used English sentence structures 3.
