Writing an Engineering Academic Paper | GPLL15


Researchers, particularly those in science and engineering disciplines, are expected to become good writers. An important part of their job is to present their results in a logically structured and well written research paper that includes understandable illustrations. For researchers who aim to excel in academia, it is vital to know how to communicate their research in written form because the number of citations a published paper receives is a measure of their professional success.

This workshop will cover the ways of creating and following a writing plan. It will explore the structure of a research paper, with particular attention to the design of good tables and figures. Participants will have the opportunity to examine research paper samples from peer reviewed journals.


Learning Objectives

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. plan a healthy strategy for the paper writing process;
2. structure each section of a research paper properly;
3. prepare clear and concise tables and figures;
4. identify and avoid common mistakes.
