Research Writinga resource for grad students and postdocs
Whether you’re writing a paper for class, developing a research proposal, or writing a journal article for publication, completing this self-paced program will broaden your understanding of research writing and help you organize your thoughts, write more clearly, and save you time.
We developed this online research writing resource to help you become more productive writers and researchers. Each module has been split into units that will take you less than ten minutes to complete, so you’re able to view the modules in their entirety or as segments.
This online writing resource is the result of the concerted and collaborative efforts of many individuals, units, and departments at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
