KNU Workshop #07 - How to write a scientific paper
1 year ago
Presented by: Prof Massoud Houshmand
and Arthur Saniotis
Science can be thought of as the combination of three essential things: (1) a communal collection of knowledge (both facts/data and theories); (2) a method of evaluating the efficacy of scientific theories by comparing the predictions of those theories to observation/experiment; and (3) an attitude of skeptical inquiry and the belief that all scientific knowledge is provisional and subject to revision when confronted with new evidence.
Most scientific messages are very complex. To make them more simple to understand, you have to keep your audience in mind. Graphical abstract. Figures. Scanning. Attention. Steps such as visually amplifying your messages will raise the credibility of your work.
How to write a proposal in this workshop you are going to learn about: Steps to organising your manuscript. Prepare the figures and tables. Write the Methods. Write up the Results. Write the Discussion. Finalise the Results and Discussion before writing the introduction. Write a clear Conclusion. Write a compelling introduction. Write the Abstract. Compose a concise and descriptive Title.
Write the Discussion Finalise the Results and Discussion before writing the introduction. This is because, if the discussion is insufficient, how can you objectively demonstrate the scientific significance of your work in the introduction?
