The online course How to Write Better Research Papers teaches you to navigate a research publication more effectively. The successful How to Write CHI Papers course series inspired this online course. The instructor taught this to large audiences at the CHI conference series for many years.
The challenge of writing good research papers is to communicate a significant and original contribution. In the case of CHI papers, this needs to benefit human-computer interaction, specifically the CHI community. Thus, researchers have to communicate the validity of their work adequately. Finally, they must do this clearly and concisely to turn a research project into a successful CHI publication.
This online course of the successful CHI paper writing course offered for many years at the CHI conference provides hands-on advice and more in-depth tutorials on writing papers with clarity, substance, and style.
