The “I” in IMRD: Writing Effective Research Article Introductions – Prerecorded Workshop
Available on demand until January 2, 2022
This prerecorded workshop is taught by Dr. Peter Grav
In this workshop, we’ll consider both the form and function of an experimental research article’s Introduction and how you can effectively “set the stage” for the presentation of your work; importantly, we’ll talk about how this phase of your article makes an argument justifying your work. Topics of discussion include the function of the Introduction, what its requisite elements are, how to write an effective literature review to frame your work and ways of identifying a “gap” in existing knowledge that your work will address.
This is the second of 4 workshops in the Writing IMRD (Introduction – Methods – Results – Discussion) Research Articles (for students in Divisions 2, 3 and 4) workshop series.
