Pełny opis:

The course will cover a wide range of topics which can be roughly divided into two groups: the particulars of formal correctness in writing and the general picture of writing and publishing a paper.

Formal correctness:

Writing preparation – conducting research, preparing an outline, and the drafting process.

Core punctuation – rules and syntactic criteria behind fundamental punctuation that is shared between different style manuals and dialects.

Style manuals – the importance of style manuals (consistency). A number of style manuals will be introduced, starting with the basic forms of citations and references they mandate. The specifics of APA and CMoS will be covered in detail. Punctuation will be re-examined in the context of manuals, indicating broad differences between manuals as well as between dialects in general.

Writing and publishing:

Composition – how to put together a compelling piece of writing. That includes going over the basic guidelines for the tone of the paper, its precision, clarity, and coherence. Emphasis is also given to understanding the place of sections, paragraphs, and other forms of structural pacing.

Philosophical argumentation – different forms of argumentation and how they are situated in texts. In other words, how to convey a particular type of argument, and how to render it an argument to begin with.

Publishing – the ins and outs of the publication process. How to write an abstract, what to expect when submitting papers, and how to address reviews. Some details concerning rights will also be covered.

Coursework will include analyzing high quality examples from papers that have actually been published, written practice, and discussions.
