دوره How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper (Project-Centered Course) ، فصل 1 : Understanding academia

درباره‌ی این فصل:

In this section of the MOOC, you will learn what is necessary before writing a paper- the context in which the scientist is publishing. You will learn how to know your own community, through different exemples, and then we will present you how scientific journal and publication works. We will finish with a couple of ethical values that the academic world is sharing!

این دوره شامل 8 فصل زیر است:

So far, in my career, I have published about 70 papers in peer reviewed scientific journals. Finally, I am also a professor at the Physics Department of Ecole Polytechnique, and therefore I supervise PhD students. However, the process of writing a scientific paper and get published can be long and painful.

I am Mattias Mano, first year PhD student from Ecole Polytechnique, and with my peers and colleagues, we will present you the complex but fascinating world of publication in academia. We will address the critical factors you mustn't forget once you finish the writing, and the main mistakes to avoid. Through this class, you will practice concretely how to write an abstract, how to build your bibliography, and you will learn important tools that will definitively help you.

In one year, you are more than 30,000 learners coming from the five continents having joined this course. As about 600 new learners starting this course each week, and among you, some French-speaking learners, we decided to produce a French version of the class. I invite you to register to

A feeling of distrust or of learning in your researchers case or in your lab making experiments. It can also help you feel stronger about your work by getting important criticism back from reviewers who are experts in your field. Through this book, you will get familiar with different steps for publishing, from selecting appropriate genres, writing the abstract, making your literature creating your references base, and bibliography.

You will find who are working on your topic, who are important for your research domain and for information in that specific community. In some cases, visiting nearby research centers and experimental laboratories in your institution may be the first step to do. And you may meet some authors in a conference that will be the starting point to build your own unique academic network.

We won't go into too much detail at the moment, but main points to have in my mind are, anonymity, acceptance ratio, time scale and its content's accuracy. Some first rate journals such as Science and Nature set a rigorous standard for the selection of the article, and even if the content shows outstanding academic result, they may demand to satisfy additional values. In this context, according to the development of information technology, there are some journals adapting new methods that aims at making a wider range of people accessible to the academic results.

But keep in mind that as the editor is the one in charge of finding reviewers, it is very important that you learn as much about his or her views on your academic field as possible. It is essential that you include references that are most commonly cited in publications in this journal, especially in your field of interest. The abstract, on the other hand, will sum up what is key in your research and will most of the time be the first thing people read when looking at your article, but more on that later.

Now, let's have a little talk about one important aspect of your writing, it's intellectual property and the ethical guidelines. When you write something in a specific paper, you agree to give full access to all your result by the journal. From a scientific point of view it leads reader to all of the content related to the one you are talking about.
