Writing for research
Research preparation is done. The next stage is to start writing! "Writing for research" is the second stage of your research journey. Learn the fundamentals of manuscript preparation and how to write them, including how to structure your article and write a great abstract.
In "Fundamentals of manuscript preparation", we've created a comprehensive series of modules to guide you through this crucial manuscript preparation stage. You will learn how to prepare your manuscript, create visual abstracts, structure your article correctly, and effectively manage your references.
Our "Writing skills" modules contain helpful advice to support successful publication. You will learn what the common pitfalls are in academic writing, the 10 most frequent mistakes in manuscripts, tips to combat ambiguity, inconsistency, and improper referencing, and how to tackle the crucial issue of plagiarism ethically.
How you format your research paper depends on your field of study and there are specific tools that are commonly used in research writing. The LaTex typewriting system, for example, is a useful tool for researchers who incorporate tables, figures, and formulae as regular manuscript features. Under the "Technical writing skills" topic, we’ll walk you through our beginners’ guide to writing a manuscript in LaTeX, tips on how to write for an interdisciplinary audience, and so much more!
