MAST607 Writing scientific papers

This course is about the process and mechanics of publishing papers in scientific journals. It covers organizing data in tables and figures; mechanics of drawing up effective figures; marshalling of tables, figures and scientific ideas into a coherent story; and strategies and techniques used in effective writing. Although “marine” is in the official title, the course takes examples from all fields of science represented by the students.
