Research Skills Development/Research Project

PD304

This course develops students’ ability to research and write a professional level manuscript, which will be submitted for international publication. Short lectures are given at the beginning of each class to advance specific writing topics, with the remainder of the time left for student peer-review workshop sessions and one-on-one assistance for the student’s individual research project. Students are instructed on the components of a research paper (introduction, methodology, results, discussion, and conclusions), the importance of logical flow of thought, research methods, and ways to correctly cite within a paper.
