Fundamentals of Journal Paper Writing and the Implication for Proposal and Report Development



Writing scientific manuscripts is one of the important training for undergraduate and graduate students. Furthermore, such manuscripts would be published in peer-reviewed journals, books, and encyclopedias as the permanent record that summarizes the research finding. I will discuss the fundamentals of writing quality journal papers in this seminar. The broader implication for writing manuscripts for selective journals and proposals to funding agencies will be addressed.



Dr. Yoke Khin Yap is a professor of physics, the director of the applied physics graduate program, and a Michigan Tech University Professor at Michigan Technological University. Dr. Yap was honored with the U.S. National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2005, the MTU Bhakta Rath Research Award In 2011, the Global Alumni Fellow title from Osaka University in 2015, the MTU Research Award in 2018, and the Michigan Tech University Professor title in 2020. His research program has been supported by more than $11M in research funding. His group has published articles in selective journals in his field, including Nature Electronics, Advanced Materials, ACS Nano, Nature Communications, and a series of book and encyclopedia chapters.
