In this course, we focus on the preliminary aspects that any researcher should focus when he/she intends to begin writing any research paper that eventually will be submitted to an international peer-reviewed journal. By attempting this course a graduate student or an early-stage researcher will be able to learn the important steps that will help him/her gather sufficient information and collate the required details that are mentioned in the journal guidelines.
We will be focusing on the following aspects in this course:
- Understanding how research papers are written in specific subject areas,
- Importance of recording details that can be incorporated into the research paper at the writing stage,
- Importance of journal selection to the writing process,
- Creating drafts of researcher papers for feedback, and
- Importance of the different styles of academic writing for research papers.
At the end of the course, researchers would have increased awareness of the following three aspects: a) differences in writing styles for different journals, b) understanding the target audience for your research papers, and c) importance of journal selection for writing research papers.
