Before you begin writing

A good research paper begins long before you start writing. Giving some deep thought as to the topic you are researching, the question you are answering and the study design, as well as ensuring you follow appropriate research laws and regulations, all contribute to making a publishable paper.

In the first half of the module we will cover:

  • Identifying hot topics and background reading
  • Study design
  • Reference managers
  • Types of journal manuscripts
