Topic
This workshop is for colleagues who have done or are planning to do some research and want to write a scientific research paper to document their findings. Its objective is to teach the participants how a research paper is structured (ie where in the paper do I report what?). This will be achieved by providing opportunities to thoroughly explore a number of scientific articles and derive some underlying principles from them. After having established the structural foundation, the workshop will focus on operational issues such as using journal templates, automated reference software and the use of databases for reference retrieval.

Participants will spend a considerable amount of time reading articles during the workshop.

Facilitator
Dr Jerome Rotgans is a Research Scientist with the Centre for Research in Pedagogy and Practice, NIE. Jerome has conducted many research and statistics workshops in Singapore and abroad. His workshops are hands-on and highly interactive.
