Proposal of seminar on academic writing Dec.19 18:40-21:00

TMDU Library Seminar 54
- Proposal of seminar on academic writing - (in English)
*That seminar on December 8 was extremely popular, so we hold the seminar with same contents on December 19.
This seminar is designed for those researchers who have written papers in English and would like to reach the next stage of publication.
If an author understands the common mistakes that writers typically make and knows how to avoid them then his/her chances of being accepted will increase. The goal of this seminar is to hone the author’s writing skills to
enable them to prepare a publication worthy manuscript by using the IMRAD format: Introduction, Methods, Result, and Discussion. This will help them get accepted, searched, and cited.
