Learning and Integrating Common Features of Professional Research Writing

Are you interested in discovering how professional research writing is structured in the natural and social sciences? In this workshop for graduate students and advanced undergraduates, we will unpack misconceptions about research writing and call attention to frequently used words and sentence structures within specialized disciplines. Learning the features of your professional discourse community will help you better meet expectations for getting your own research published. Please bring short drafts of your own research or work with one of the supplied examples for applying what you’ve learned.

NOTE: You will benefit the most from this workshop if you’re confident you already have a firm grasp of English grammar. If you would like to refresh your grammar skills, check out our Grammar I and Grammar II workshops!
