Great talk! everyone who writes a research paper should watch it!
Wtf dude? 90 % of the text is Comic-Sans and 10 % Times New Roman, a hate both fonts! It's just.... NO! Why not just using Calibri / Verdana / Helvetica / Arial??? This is good content though!
Very good break down. Basically a paper needs to grow and be planned and treated with respect.
Write anything you want, but please! don't use Comic Sans to do it. Not if you want to look friendly, but specially not if you want to look serious... I'm sorry I just couldn't watch the video :D thanks anyway
This is the most useful presentation about academic writing I have seen so far.
Dear Professor Simon, I am spending nights thinking how to start writing my first paper. I am at a loss. But, watching his video has helped me a lot. Thanks a lot. I will not waste any more time and just start to write. Write, write and write...

Exelent lecture and time well invested. About to start classes and now want jump on the term paper before they begin. Very thankful toMatthew Jaques director of Library services and his team at Charter College for linking this video on their site.
Great and useful lecture
I totally appreciate and understand the points but how's this not biased and in a way cheating? A truly objective scientific research is about reporting ALL, good and bad, relevant or irrelevant. Surely that's not how it's done in modern era but that's not how early scientists and inventors did research. They wrote letters to one another and in it they talked about everything they had observed or whatever they were thinking and wishing to see happen. I understand that's not as PR friendly but selling shouldn't be a point of doing science. Selling and appearing should NOT be part of scientific anything. That's for religions and matters of faith, not scientific research. That's my take it, though I'm doing exactly that as a phd student bc I have to suck up to this system even though it's just not ' scientific' or objective. It's as human and as subjective as it gets.
Thank you!!
Amazing woks r
*WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE IDEAS????????????*
This is an amazing teacher😢
This is indeed very helpful
Awesome, this whole 35 minutes just changed my entire mind.
Very interesting talk.
An eye opener for a young researcher like myself.
Hi. After watching some videos on theoretical framework and conceptual..i found myself confuse in whether we can invent our own theoretical framework or we just have to take other people's theoretical framework as our reference theory. while conceptual framework is something that we invent to show our understanding and association between variables. Am i correct? help me please.=
Simon P. Jones is such a rhetoric beast! A whole inspiration in any field.
This video goes against the structure I have taught my middle school students for years. What happened to thesis statement? Main idea? Supporting details? I get that " the times, they are a changing...." Some fundamentals I thought were written in stone...
Excellent presentation, very engaging
It was really impact full for me thanks a lot dear
As an independent researcher myself, this is a very practical, important lecture, very close to the true of what it takes to write a paper... Thanks!
Très intéressant!

This is great
How come?00:40 I have an idea, but in computer science, most the researchers are synthetic "quantitative" I have to do research to prove it before I finalize the right words in my paper based on my results, so how came you let your paper lead you it seems "test driven methodology" but I don’t think it will work here.
Great video, thanks.
