Structuring a Science Paper

Learn about SPF - Science Paper Format

Research papers can seem intimidating - daunting both to read and to write. But information in a lot of research articles is actually organised in a fairly standard way.

This workshop will explain the main components of the ‘Science Paper Format’ (SPF). By understanding these key elements, you will see that SPF writing allows researchers to communicate their study findings effectively and allows readers to locate the information they want. It will help you read academic articles by others quickly and efficiently, and show you how to structure a well-organised research report yourself.


Our workshops run all year round at our Helpdesk in the Silberrad Student Centre, and cover all aspects of academic skills, maths and statistics.  You can also book a 1:1 appointment with an advisor to talk over anything in your studies that you need help with.
