Event description


Our Writing Research Manuscripts session is a tune-up for postdocs preparing research papers for publication. The fundamental principles discussed can be used in a variety of written texts including research abstracts, conference papers, journal articles, text for research posters, and so on. We will consider the central role of rhetorical positioning in the development of clear, interesting, and rigorous science writing, the significance of narrowing the problem space, the construction of logical arguments, and the reporting and interpretation of data, as well as other important concepts including reader-oriented writing, genre, register, tone, word choice, pacing, and strategies for redrafting and editing. For this short session we will look closely at the structure and language of research paper Introductions and Data Commentaries.

Please contact Janet directly ( if you have any questions.
