What is "Toward your Forum Paper: research writing"?


In this series of workshops you will look at how to write up your research effectively and accurately. Specifically you will be working on writing up your Forum Papers.

The sessions not only look at questions of language per se, but also look at what it means to write well in economics. 

How is "Toward your Forum Paper" organised?


The course consists of six sessions, organised around the various parts of the research paper, e.g. the abstract, the introduction, conclusion etc. Each session will include some input and some practice. All work we ask you to do outside classtime will focus exclusively on your Forum Paper. 

The exact content of the course will be decided together with the participants. If you already have an idea of certain areas you would like to work on, you can suggest these at the first session. If of interest to the whole class we will include them in the course. If specific to you, we will provide you with individual materials and help. 

Feedback on your writing will come from three sources:  yourself, your peers, and your teacher. It will be both oral and written. 

What writing skills will "Toward your Forum Paper" focus on?


We will be practising the skills needed to write up your research effectively in English, including:

  • Getting your audience’s interest
  • Maintaining your audience’s interest
  • Organising an introduction
  • Concluding your paper
  • Writing effective abstracts
  • Clear and accurate writing
