A self-learning activity for the participants in the workshop of academic paper writing for publication

Writing research papers in a professional and presentable manner is an important aspect of research postgraduate studies. To prepare our undergraduates for a seamless transition to research studies and presenting their positive research impacts in enquiry-based learning, the English Language Centre (ELC) has tailored two workshops on academic paper writing for publication and literature review writing, on 11 and 18 February 2022 respectively, for students under the Undergraduate Research and Innovation Scheme (URIS) of the College of Undergraduate Researchers and Innovators (CURI).

The academic paper writing for publication workshop offered an overview of the academic publishing process, the value of academic publishing to undergraduates, some common differences between university writing assignments and academic publications, with some suggested preparation and self-learning activities for the participants. 

In the literature review writing workshop, we came to explore the main purposes and characteristics of a literature review, possible content to be reviewed, possible organisational patterns, two authentic literature reviews analysed as examples of coherent, engaging, and convincing stories, and some recurring language issues in literature review writing.

Ignite your research aspiration today and get prepared to demonstrate a positive research impact at PolyU. CURI became a part of GS in December 2021.
