Revision Strategies for Research Papers: The Introduction

Date 24 April 2019 (Wednesday)
Time 10:30am-12:30pm
Speaker Paul Nerney
Venue Digital Scholarship Lab, University Library
Registration To secure a seat, register now.
Workshop Description The introduction of a research paper is generally short, but it is rhetorically complex. Therefore, it needs to be constructed carefully so that it leads readers to an understanding of what the paper is about and why it should be read. The talk focuses on specific revision strategies for research paper introductions and exercises for participants to learn these strategies and apply them to their writing.
