This module extends the teaching of scientific writing to second year students. Students are expected to use mostly primary literature in preparing for these assessments. The module aims to extend the student’s ability to digest the primary literature on a variety of topics and to write in a scientific manner. This module will also provide Integrated Science students with additional support for other second year modules. Students will write detailed and well researched essays, draft components of scientific papers and concisely summarise research findings, research topics in the literature and learn how to critically analyse scientific papers.
