How to write different sections as per the IMRAD structure

Checks and balances to ensure success in research writing

Description

Academic writing involves a meticulous record of experiments, results, observations, and conclusions. To ensure research findings are communicated in a consistent manner, scholars use the IMRAD (an acronym for ‘Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion’) structure, which is also the dominant format for research papers in a majority of leading scientific journals.

This well-planned program demystifies the IMRAD structure and tells you how you can use it to organize ideas and write a concise, effective research manuscript, without missing out on critical information. You will learn about the purpose and intent of different sections, and the key elements to include in each section. By the end of the course, you will be able to craft a masterful manuscript that allows editors and reviewers to quickly evaluate manuscripts and helps peers easily locate key data without reading the entire paper.
