In five courses, you will acquire the knowledge and skills that are deemed to be essential to success in scientific writing. You will develop your expertise with a range of academic literacy skills and self-editing strategies to prepare a publishable manuscript that editors will take seriously. You will learn the unwritten rules of good writing to meet the requirements of modern-day research publications. You will also learn practical tools and techniques for writing an easy-to-read persuasive grant proposal and a convincing request for funding. Finally, you will gain skills necessary to communicate information obtained through a process of technical or experimental work. This Specialization is the perfect first step into the world of research publications. It is designed to take your knowledge of academic writing and turn it into an in-depth understanding of current trends in scientific writing to help you get published in an international journal, win a research project grant, or report research findings.

  • Leah Olive-Nishioka is taking this course right now, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be hard.

    The information is not presented in a clear or linear format. While the content is easy, the testing requirements are too focused on minutia rather than understanding the course content. Many questions require multiple answers, which causes confusion due to inconsistency of definitions between lessons. I do not recommend this course.
