Unit 2: Menulis Ilmiah Papers

Sebuah ilustrasi komik menunjukkan seorang pria di kursi tinggi-kembali duduk di belakang meja.
Seorang wanita duduk di meja, di seberang pria itu. Pria itu menggenggam kertas di tangannya dan
gelembung kutipan menunjukkan dia berkata, "Tidak, tidak, jika Anda membuat kertas terlalu
mudah dibaca, semua orang akan tahu bagaimana Anda mendapatkan hasil!"
Sebagai seorang ilmuwan, Anda diharapkan untuk berbagi pekerjaan penelitian Anda dengan orang
lain dalam berbagai bentuk. Mungkin yang paling menuntut bentuk ini adalah makalah yang
diterbitkan dalam jurnal ilmiah. Makalah tersebut memiliki standar kualitas yang tinggi, dan mereka
secara resmi disebarluaskan dan diarsipkan. Oleh karena itu, mereka merupakan yang berharga,
referensi abadi bagi para ilmuwan lainnya - dan untuk Anda juga. Bahkan, jumlah kertas yang Anda
mempublikasikan dan pentingnya mereka (seperti yang disarankan oleh faktor dampaknya) sering
dipandang sebagai cerminan prestasi ilmiah Anda. Penulisan karya ilmiah yang berkualitas tinggi
membutuhkan waktu, tetapi waktu dengan baik diinvestasikan.

Seperti Anda mungkin telah menyadari, bagaimanapun, banyak karya ilmiah gagal berguna
mengkomunikasikan karya penelitian untuk audiens mereka. Mereka fokus pada penulis bukan pada
pembaca dengan tidak mengklarifikasi motivasi untuk bekerja atau dengan memasukkan rincian
yang tidak perlu. Atau mereka mencoba untuk mengesankan pembaca daripada memberitahu
mereka. Akibatnya, mereka menarik atau dipahami oleh hanya sekelompok kecil pembaca sangat
khusus. Karya ilmiah yang efektif, sebaliknya, menarik dan berguna untuk banyak pembaca,
termasuk pendatang baru ke lapangan.

Unit ini akan membantu Anda menulis karya ilmiah baik dalam bahasa Inggris. Secara khusus, ini
akan membantu Anda memilih dan mengatur konten Anda, menyusun kertas, dan merevisi tulisan
Anda sehingga tugas akhir Anda berguna untuk khalayak luas - tidak hanya beberapa spesialis.

READING SCIENTIFIC PAPERS

FINDING A SUITABLE ARTICLE TO REVIEW:

Bibliographic sources

1. Reference lists - Once you find a single good article, you can use the reference list at
the end of the article to find an ever-expanding list of related articles. (See also Citation
Index below.)

2. Reliable journals - People will often page through two or three of their favorite
journals just to look for interesting articles and to generally keep up with what is going on in
science. Most libraries (and in particular, Lane - medicine, and Falconer - biology) have
designated sections where they display recent received journals.

however. however. Bioabstracts 8. they are even more likely to contain erroneous statements.Very hit or miss as far as quality. 5. Colleagues. One can get interesting leads on what will be coming out. Remember. comprehensible pictures and diagrams. so it is worthwhile to read on that basis alone. Web searches . For example. 9. Others.The press often receives advanced copies of journals even before they are sent to scientists or libraries. Because no one person can possibly screen the literature. 1. This is a way to find a more recent article on the same topic. Therefore. Index Medicus 2. 3. See how strong the evidence is. they are published less frequently. It is a compilation of all the articles that were referenced by recently published articles. professors. you can look that article up and see what other articles used it as a reference in the past month for instance. and human interest aspects of a scientific story. even for an article that is accurately written. This is a way of rapidly perusing the titles of a large number of articles in order to decide which ones bear further scrutiny. However. such as The National Enquirer should be assumed to be fictionalized and are of no value (except perhaps as entertainment). Popular press . Computer searches .To me this is one of the most valuable resources there is.In concept. Therefore. NEVER take the findings presented in a newspaper article at face value. and they contain not only the title of the article but the abstract or summary as well. and friends. Always look up the citation for yourself and see what it says. these are like Current Contents. They are written to catch the eye and to conform to space requirements. I have found Lycos to be more useful than Yahoo.This is a journal that consists of the table of contents reprinted from a number of other journals. Remember that different search engines will produce different results. I have been very impressed at the ability to locate hard to find trivia. It is imperative to do an appropriate job of restricting the search topic or you will end up with more references than you know what to do with. but you do not have a good starting place. . 7. In this case. that only a miniscule proportion of findings reach the popular press so the selection is often biased and/or sensationalized. most of which will be extraneous. See if they got the message right.This is a good way to go if you know what topic you want to study. Web Crawler will search using a variety of search engines at the same time. * 6. Compilations of Abstacts . this is an excellent way to find out about interesting articles. if you find an excellent article from two years ago. Certain papers such as the New York Times are much more likely to get the facts straight.

all the while deciding whether or not to give it further attention. I will discuss one approach. Those of you who have had significant experience reading such articles will have developed a style of you own. three. or four times. Furthermore. 2) You may be interested in a specific aspect of the article rather than the entire thing. there will be things you simply do not understand because 1) you do not have the adequate background. 2) looking things up in textbooks.READING SCIENTIFIC ARTICLES There are many appproaches to reading scientific articles. You should be prepared to do some work in order to acquire sufficient background for adequate understanding of an article. There are simply too many articles and it would require too much work. 3) Understanding of one part of an article will often require backward or forward reference to another part of the article. *** For adequate understanding of an article. 4) asking questions of people who may know. appears to make perfect sense on subsequent readings. In general. people do not try to conquer every article they encounter. For those of you who have not. There are several reasons for this: 1) The information is too dense to comprehend it with a simple reading. Do not overlook this last possibility simply because you see something in print. One does not read a journal article like a novel or a newspaper article. The decision is based on several factors: 1) Whether the article is of sufficient interest 2) Whether the article is relevant to their work 3) Whether the article is of general importance 4) Whether the article is if high quality and or accurate . The special structure of such articles allows one to find the desired section more easily. They tend to go through a sequential process of studying the article . You should be comforted to know that even experienced scientists must read articles over and over again. This will include: 1) looking up points made in the references. 3) looking up words in dictionaries (particularly biological and medical dictionaries). You will often be amazed to discover that what seemed completely incomprehensible on the first reading. you should be prepared to read an article at least two. 2) they are just too complicated. or 3) they simply do not make sense.

3) Look at the date. You will not understand them this first time through but this will help you know what to look for when you actually read the article. Interestingly. 2) Read introduction. In addition to the publication date. the date is less important than the quality of thought. Read the title slowly until it makes sense. Some authors will also present the punch line of their research in a way that is easier to understand than the way it is presented in the abstract. This is an important process in trying to judge the quality of the data. 5) Whether the article is clearly written and accessible at least after reasonable amount of effort 6) Whether the article is "meaty" 7) Whether the article is short. In molecular biology. Read the first few paragraphs and the last few paragraphs. read the whole thing. You will want to go back to the reference page over and over again. when the article gets written and when it gets published. journals that are refereed (see below) are more likely to be delayed in their publication. Read the abstract slowly until it makes sense. but in consolidating background information. many journals list the date when the article was received. the date may be all-important.not so much in terms of presenting new information. whose work you know. 2) Look through the authors to see if there is anyone whose name you recognize. 3) The introduction will often cite many of the references. . With policy issues. 2) Go to the discussion. and the date when the article was accepted. Phase II: Getting the punch line. 4) Some articles have a brief list of key words. where information is rapidly changing. Although they are sometimes misleading (as anyone who has done a computer reference search knows) they are usually quite informative and should be looked at early on. If it is short and/or easy to understand. The introduction is often the easiest part of an article to read. it is also the most informative . The references are particularly informative if they contain the titles of the articles being cited. In some cases. Phase III: Understanding the approach 1) Peruse the figures and tables. 1) Read the abstract once fast looking for key words. Some specific suggestions: Phase I: Screening the article 1) Read the title once fast looking for key words. but are less likely to contain inaccurate or frivolous articles. Bear in mind that there is a definite lag period between when the research gets done. This is an excellent time to begin looking at them.

Jot down further ideas or questions. X-off things that are wrong. Other parts of the methods may remain obscure even after the rest of the article is fairly clear. Phase V: Increasing understanding 1) Reread the article in its entirety. You may wish to read several times. The monetary investment will surely be trivial in comparison to the investment of your time. Question things you do not understand or that do not appear to make sense. 4) Read the results section. reread the abstract once again Statistic Abstract: Statistical power. plays a critical role in empirical research. 2) Be sure to write on the article. such as where the chemicals were purchased or whence the viral strains were obtained do not actually contribute to an understanding of the article and may be safely omitted. the methods should be studied only in so far as they contribute to the understanding of the rest of article. specifies procedures for calculating power. 6) Study the figures and tables. At this point you should be able to have an adequate understanding of them. and assesses the power of empirical research published in Research in the Teaching of English during a three-year period. 4) Before leaving the article. Circle words you do not know. the probability of rejecting the null hypothesis. 2) Skim the abstract and the introduction once again. Consult textbook to clarify points of general biology. 3) Consult the references. The methods section will need to be studied carefully only if you intend to use some of the procedures in your research. Check important points.Phase IV: First reading 1) If you get this far you may wish to photocopy the article if you have not already done so. Look up points that were not fully explained. Look up words that are unfamiliar. For our purposes. 5) Read the discussion. This report suggests why power is of special importance to English Education researchers. Certain parts of the methods. 3) Skim the methods section. Results of the analysis indicate English Education research to be of low power but .
