Writing a Scientific Paper: Key Strategies for Clarity

Click Here To View The Presentation

Scientists rarely consider their work complete until it’s published. Yet researchers often wonder exactly what journals are looking for. Many papers “lose the forest for the trees.” In writing about the details of the research, the writer may miss the larger “story” the research is telling. This webinar will describe key elements journal editors and reviewers are seeking in a paper, as well as writing techniques that can help you present the research most effectively.

After attending this webinar, you will know:

  • Four elements journals are looking for in a scientific paper
  • Why continuity is the key element of a scientific paper
  • Four main kinds of continuity and how to use each one
  • How to identify and tell the “story” of the paper using both text and visuals (figures, tables, etc.).
