Writing/Persuasive Arguments for Behavioral Science

Course Number: 47909

Through this course, students will discuss and learn about the various aspects of writing research papers for the behavioral sciences. Students often get considerable training on designing empirical strategies and producing and describing results. This course focuses on the various other aspects of writing as an academic. These include the “front end” of a paper, writing reviews, and responding to reviewers’ comments. To that end, we will discuss different strategies to frame, develop and execute an argument to motivate various types of empirical designs and methods. We will also discuss the process of submitting to journals, writing reviews and responding to reviewer letters.
