The SMCM Library, Archives & Media Center is sponsoring a Research & Technical Writing Workshop Series for students! The workshops will cover the research writing process from the planning and proposal stages through the writing and revision stages and includes a one-on-one session with workshop leader Sarah J. Pack.
The Research & Technical Writing Workshop will cover the following topics over the course of three sessions:
Introduction to the research process, including the proposal process, literature review, and discussions of data, results, and analysis.
Learn the characteristics of high-quality technical writing.
Overview of how to structure each component of a research paper.
In depth discussions and exercises of the prewriting process: planning and organizing. Planning includes the research proposal process and data collection. Organizing includes outlining the paper and collecting sources.
We will walk through the writing and composition of each section of a typical research paper: introductory material, data and methods, results and analysis sections, conclusions, and appendices.
Examples and discussions related to formatting a research paper, including incorporating tables and figures.
Exercises and discussions of common errors and how to correct them, review of grammar and syntax, and general rules of formal writing.
Schedule a one-on-one session with Sarah for individualized help with your writing.
