Goal Of A Research Paper

Research papers and that’s what this talk is about this is about the process of getting to get get you getting back together to write research papers that will be accepted by program committees and it kind of is like this it’s it’s just the skill right it’s a really important skill doing the research is important but writing about it also really important I just want to do in this next now just give you some some thoughts about the process that I go through when I when I write a paper this is not something about which anybody has a monopoly on truth and so as I go just just um ask questions or make comments like this you’ll have had an experience that’s different to me and just stick your hand up and make ask a question. More about setting goals for your work at Edusson.

I’ll make comment as we go along don’t wait until the end because it will always certainly run out of time we’ll have to way too much fun right so just um just know this isn’t this isn’t something that anybody has perfect answers to so let’s see I want to start off with some non reasons for writing papers but when you write good search paper you have to know what you’re trying to achieve like so here’s a knot is something that most people think this might be about writing babies I think is a very bad reason like you can you could be all these slides will be up you can read the the cartoon later right so it’s not just to sort of impress other people it’s because writing research papers is part of being a good researcher it’s fundamental part right now say a bit more about why here’s another thing that people often write papers about they think oh I’ve done this work and I should write about it so it’s like what I did in my summer holidays right but the trouble is that nobody is really interested in you per se at all while you are but they aren’t right why they’re going to read your paper not because they want to know about what you did in your some holidays but because you’re going to convey something interesting to them here’s another thing people often write papers about they’ve built some system.

And they say of course everybody would want to know about the Wiswall system but sadly this is not true nobody else is interested in the Wiswall system right they it’s yours and why should they care last thing and this is slightly more plausible that you might think you’re writing research paper to describe something new right novelty is you know it’s kind of usually good in science isn’t it and you might find you read papers you say the novel feature of the system is X right so now I have to pause a little bit right because in biology say novelty has value in its own right if you discover something new about the way cells work the world is a better place what we know more in computer science it’s like a fractal subject it’s like a snowflake.
