Scientific writing calls for unique cognitive skills. APlusReports.com writers will review scientific method and logic, equipping them to help customers.
Online PR News – 10-July-2010 – – Writing for a professional scientific audience entails some very special skills and follows a set of rules unique to science. APlusReports.com management wants to ensure that our professional writers are equipped to craft exemplary scientific articles, papers, theses, and other research-based documents for our customers. To accomplish this, we will host a seminar onsite introducing our writers to scientific method and specific characteristics of scientific writing.
The seminar series will cover the historical development of the scientific method, and its implications for scientific argument. Yes, this seems dry! However, our presenters promise to uncover excitement in this topic.
In addition to highlighting such pitfalls of scientific thought as affirming the consequent, or circular reasoning, the sessions address recent research documenting student deficits in cognitive skills. Work at Carnegie-Mellon University has identified specific weaknesses in thinking:
Focusing on actions (calculating answer or finding specific piece of information)
Ignoring careful and appropriate decision-making
“Forgetting” useful knowledge
Invoking inappropriate knowledge
Not assessing own performance effectively
Persisting in errors
Why on earth should APlusReports.com be concerned with these issues?
The answer will be clear to any writer who has tried to help a customer whose dissertation has been tossed back into their lap by their advisor. “Deer in the headlights” describes a student in such circumstances.
APlusReports.com writers are always there to help customers to understand and respond to advisor comments and criticism. Often, the problem lies with the student’s basic grasp of the thought processes unique to science.
The current seminar series will equip our staff to guide students more effectively in editing and revising such material. Of course, our writers and editors cannot replace the function of science instructors. However, we often fill in the gaps, which appear when inexperienced researchers first tackle independent projects.
Therefore, it’s back to school for our writers: They should be on top of their game after reviewing the rules of logical inference, and the steps in scientific method (observation, hypothesis, testing, etc.). In the final exercise we will read and analyze well-regarded published studies, and identify how the author followed scientific method.
