The Science Writing Core Module contains the most important topics that will get you to publish your journal article.

Introduction

Over the period of a semester, we will investigate, reflect on, discuss, and practice all parts that make up a journal article. The main approach is through rhetorical analysis of what the text does and implement these in our own text. To get the most out of this, we suggest you work on your own article. Our overall aim is that after the semester, you’ll have a paper which is (near) ready for submission.

Objectives

  • Identify and critically evaluate different rhetorical devices in journal articles
  • Write and revise their draft for different rhetorical devices.
  • Review drafts of journal articles and give and take constructive feedback to learn and revise their own text
  • Draft an effective cover letter stipulating the needs of their draft journal article
  • Develop a full academic paper through various revision loops, including online and face-to-face peer review

Outcomes

  • can diagnose their own writing process and writing techniques, and experiment with this process to best suit their personal writing needs, and develop as scientific writers;
  • can understand writing requirements for their discipline and specific journal requirements;
  • can improve their text to be more scientific, formal, informal, and can communicate their message to different target groups;
  • have developed their skills to critically analyse and give feedback to written and oral texts;
  • can receive and integrate feedback;
