Students will learn about the process of writing academic journal articles including writing an abstract, literature review, and methods, results, and discussion sections. They will also focus on sentence- and paragraph-level issues in their writing and elements of writing style such as conciseness, ambiguity, and clarity. Throughout the course, students will review and practice organizational skills for longer papers, summarize numerical and theoretical data, and practice the mechanics of writing.
