Blended course "Targeting your research for a journal: preparatory stage"
Program Goal: analyzing language features of articles in disciplinary fields with regards to the requirements of the selected journal
1. choose an international journal for publication
2. annotate three articles for further use in references of their publications
3. create a language corpus of articles in the disciplinary field.
Particular attention is paid to choosing a journal for publication and compiling language corpus for a particular disciplinary field. As there is a variety of scientific sources of information, including predatory journals, the author should take a responsible approach to the process of choosing a journal. It is important to understand how wide the coverage of an article can be and how a publication can affect your career generally. An equally important aspect is working with the text of the article in accordance with the requirements of the selected journal. The language corpus compiled on the basis of publications in the relevant disciplinary field can provide significant assistance in writing an article in English. You will be able to identify and further use language and structural features, which are expected in your scientific field.
