This tutorial has been used in F2F and online courses. Students in scientific courses are often unaware of the structure of a scientific article and also unable to distinguish what goes into the various parts and how important it is to place facts in methods and results and save opinion for the discussion/conclusion section. This tutorial series (4 parts) addresses both issues, providing both tutorial material (2 parts) and self-administered quizzes (2 parts). All four parts are available in MERLOT: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.
