Structuring a Scientific Paper

Contrary to a common belief, writing an effective scientific paper is not a mysterious literary feat. Rather, it is largely a matter of organization. Therefore, to aid in writing scientific papers, this seminar will explore their basic structure. The seminar will discuss both the standard structure of a scientific paper as a whole and the appropriate content and organization of each major section. Feel free to bring questions. And be ready to write your next scientific paper with increased confidence, efficiency, and success.
