Reporting on Research:  The Essentials of Preparing a Paper for Publication

 

 

This seminar will provide an overview of the tasks involved in preparing a paper for publication.

 

Key topics include:

 

          • Effective titles

          • Standard organizational strategies

          • Graceful integration of equations, tables and figures

          • Textual hierarchy

          • Appropriate style

         

Each participant should bring with her/him a copy of an article that reports on research in the participant’s field of interest and that has been published in a prestigious journal.  We will use these papers as the basis of our analysis.
