First stop for accessing your resources for research.
Many scientists and engineers consider themselves poor writers or find the writing process difficult. The good news is that you do not have to be a talented writer to produce a good scientific paper, but you do have to be a careful writer. In particular, writing for a peer-reviewed scientific or engineering journal requires learning and executing a specific formula for presenting scientific work. This book is all about teaching the style and conventions of writing for a peer-reviewed scientific journal. From structure to style, titles to tables, abstracts to author lists, this book gives practical advice about the process of writing a paper and getting it published.
This section contains resources on conducting research, working in teams, writing reports and journal articles, as well as presenting research. This section also contains the material from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) - Purdue Writing Lab Workshop Series and the material from the Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) resources
The Writing Center serves as a place where students can work to become better writers, as well as to improve specific pieces of written work. We work with students of all levels of preparation and confidence who may be working at any stage of the writing process, from prewriting to revision.
