How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper (Project-Centered Course)
About this Course
What you will achieve:
In this project-based course, you will outline a complete scientific paper, choose an appropriate journal to which you'll submit the finished paper for publication, and prepare a checklist that will allow you to independently judge whether your paper is ready to submit.
What you'll need to get started:
This course is designed for students who have previous experience with academic research - you should be eager to adapt our writing and publishing advice to an existing personal project.
