Outline of the Seminar:
[Effective Paraphrasing]
Researchers depend on the published record when designing their studies and presenting their findings. However,earlier work must be cited, and in most cases previously published text must be paraphrased, to comply with copyright restrictions. The instructor will present severalexamples of accurate and readable paraphrases of typical text from published research papers. Participants will then be asked to paraphrase selected passages.

[Writing and revising a research article]
In this workshop we will first discuss the principles of good science writing. Participants will then apply these principles to revising examples of text from research articles.Finally, we will discuss how Google Scholar can be used to identify stylistically appropriate expressions in academic writing.
