Overview

In this communications course, you will learn how to properly write a paper in English, cite references and give attributions. You will also learn how to choose research topics and write proposals for research funding.

It is increasingly important that new scholars and students become familiar with, and abide by the international standard when writing papers, submitting them for publication, dealing with editors, and applying for funding. Above all, knowing how to conduct a clear English presentation is an essential requirement for research papers being accepted.

In this course, along with learning best practices for writing a paper, you will also learn about “conventions and protocols” of international academia and the cultural differences between East and West.

发表高质量的学术论文和参与国际学术交流已经成为科学研究必不可少的环节及衡量学术成就的重要指标。清晰的英文表达是国际期刊和会议论文被录用的基本要求。论文投稿和修改,与编辑打交道,熟悉并遵守国际学术规则和惯例十分重要。

本课程旨在指导学生如何撰写国际期刊和会议论文,介绍国际学术界的惯例和规则,讨论相关的东西方文化差异,并指导如何正确引用参考文献,尊重他人研究成果,如何参加学术活动如参加学术会议、如何当评审人及如何担任国际期刊编委、国际会议程序委员会委员等学术工作。
