À propos du cours

Scholarly Communication is a concise but comprehensive course on how to write research papers in English. The course will help the candidates gain a better understanding of the rhetorical conventions of English and the common challenges the candidates may face as an academic writer. The course provides instruction, exercises, structure, and deadlines needed to create a publishable paper. The aim of the course is to improve competence in scholarly communications by deepening knowledge of the core features of the scientific writing style. It presents and analyzes the unwritten rules of scientific writing, the ones candidates most likely never learned in academic writing. The course will enable the candidates to write clear, detailed and well-structured scientific texts appropriate to a suitable academic journal. In particular, they will develop an awareness of fundamental concepts of academic writing, such as contrastive rhetoric, logical organization, and argumentation. In addition, they will develop skills for self-editing and revision techniques, including editing for precision and clarity. They will also gain a deeper understanding of how to prepare a scientific paper using the IMRAD format. Finally, the candidates will develop an enhanced understanding of the concept of academic integrity and the ethics of scientific writing. The candidates will be able to overcome anxiety about academic publishing and get their research papers published in international journals....

The Academic Writing and Scholarly Communication are a solid introduction to scientific writing. A lot of science writing books focus on the larger structure, but these courses focus on sentence and paragraph level scientific writing. That's the part most novice writers struggle with. The content is great, but I think they could improve the assignments. Some of the quizzes could be replaced with shorter written assignments. Sometimes, the content in the lecture contradicted the answers in the quizzes. The content of the course could be condensed a bit more, since there is a bit repetition in the lectures. But, overall it's a very useful course.

The theoretical part of the Course is great. I also liked the peer-grading assignments we had. However, the Practice Quiz part requires improvements: sometimes it's difficult to make an input as the field size for the text does not correspond the length of the text required. What is more, there are some questions in quizzes that do not have a specific answer, however, it is not possible to answer them as the publisher locked a concrete answer and whatever you write there (even if it is a correct statement) it is marked as incorrect.

Очень много полезного узнал. Однако есть масса технических недоработок. При ответе на вопрос с текстом, где нужно записать ответ самому, кажется, что там только один правильный вариант. Но ведь это не так, их много. Или при перечислении (тоже печатный ответ) важно соблюсти порядок. Иначе система не принимает ответ.

It's a course full of good advice. However, the content of the last 2 weeks is too general and don't provide all that many examples. It is a recommendable course if you want to improve your writing in order to increase the chances of publishing a scientific article.

The course provides a number of very useful tips for researchers, especially those whose first language is not English. There are a number of useful guides for new researchers to learn how to structure, phrase, and approach academic writing. However, there are also a few shortcomings of the course. Some of the material is overly subjective (giving rules for academic writing that are not necessarily applicable). Many of the assessment questions ask about issues which are either overly specific or simply incorrect (this is a very small percentage, but it is noticeable). The pace of the videos is also slow and oddly punctuated to the point that it can be difficult to follow at times. Finally, the course relies too heavily on academic writing for the hard sciences, rather than taking a broader approach, so some students may wish to keep this in mind when watching, as some advice may not be applicable to their own discipline.

Overall, a recommended course for ESL academics, but could do with some improvement.

It's good for undergraduates, and people returning to academia (say, before starting a Master's course). It's a very short simple introduction. I kind of wish it had more examples of language to use in academic writing, contrasting good and bad examples.

Some of the quiz questions and final exam questions need some proofreading. The videos from about week 3 to 4 have poor sound quality, but still understandable.

Intended for Non-native English speakers, or English speakers without a strong literary background, 'Scholarly Communication' gives an overview of how to construct coherent arguments for academic publication.

There are multiple typos and presentation issues throughout the course; however, they do not necessarily detract from the content of the course.

The course contains useful writing tips, but severly lacks practical writing assignments (peer-review assessment would be great here!). The quizzes are way too easy, IMO.

This is a useful course, but please look into the spelling and grammatical errors in the text.
