S.2 Ep.5 Article/Essay Formats

The type of format you intend to write in helps define the type of writing that you should do. While article or essay formats are not particularly 'hot topics,' formats guide expectations, much in the same way we expect to be scared when watching a horror film, or expect to laugh at a comedy. In the same way, scientific formats give us guidance on how we can structure ideas and evidence.

Niklas and Clay walk through some of the common peer review article formats, and discuss formats for other forms of academic writing, such as Ph.D kappas, home exam papers and course essays. We really tried to think of a more interesting title for this episode, but it is what it is!
