7 Tips for Writing a Great Research Paper

tipsby Arjenne Louter, the Dutch PhD Coach:

A while ago, I received this great link from my colleague Annemarie Van der Zeeuw to a lecture of Professor Simon Peyton Jones on writing.

He gives seven simple suggestions to make sure you write a great research paper. His suggestions:
  1. don’t wait - write,
  2. identify your key idea,
  3. tell a story,
  4. nail your contributions,
  5. put related work at the end,
  6. put your readers first,
  7. listen to your readers.
How to apply them? Listen to the lecture, it takes a bit more than 30 minutes, but it is worthwhile!
