Scholarly Communication, モスクワ物理工科大学(Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology)



Scholarly Communication is a concise but comprehensive course on how to write research papers in English. The course will help the candidates gain a better understanding of the rhetorical conventions of English and the common challenges the candidates may face as an academic writer. The course provides instruction, exercises, structure, and deadlines needed to create a publishable paper. The aim of the course is to improve competence in scholarly communications by deepening knowledge of the core features of the scientific writing style. It presents and analyzes the unwritten rules of scientific writing, the ones candidates most likely never learned in academic writing. The course will enable the candidates to write clear, detailed and well-structured scientific texts appropriate to a suitable academic journal. In particular, they will develop an awareness of fundamental concepts of academic writing, such as contrastive rhetoric, logical organization, and argumentation. In addition, they will develop skills for self-editing and revision techniques, including editing for precision and clarity. They will also gain a deeper understanding of how to prepare a scientific paper using the IMRAD format. Finally, the candidates will develop an enhanced understanding of the concept of academic integrity and the ethics of scientific writing. The candidates will be able to overcome anxiety about academic publishing and get their research papers published in international journals....

Очень много полезного узнал. Однако есть масса технических недоработок. При ответе на вопрос с текстом, где нужно записать ответ самому, кажется, что там только один правильный вариант. Но ведь это не так, их много. Или при перечислении (тоже печатный ответ) важно соблюсти порядок. Иначе система не принимает ответ.

It's a course full of good advice. However, the content of the last 2 weeks is too general and don't provide all that many examples. It is a recommendable course if you want to improve your writing in order to increase the chances of publishing a scientific article.

46€ later and more than 20 days stuck with no one reviewing my submission, I am wondering why I should not give up this hell.
