论写论文的目的(心态)

最近写论文写着写着,就感觉像是领悟到了写论文的意义。以前总是觉得写论文就是把自己做了什么写在论文中,然后最后总结下在这个文章中做了什么。现在看来那种写法就想写一个本科大作业一样,缺少故事性也确实没有什么吸引力。

其实每一篇文章应该把他们当做自己的孩子,然后呢,不是说生了(实验或者数据图)就可以,还需要用主线把他们连接起来。有点像哪吒的莲藕变真人的意思。如果没有一定的主线那么就这个娃就没有生命力。别人读起来也很枯燥,即使文章的结果很好,别人可能还没有读到结果,读者就放弃了。

发文章的首要目的应该是就是提高自己文章的曝光度和影响力吧,让大家都知道自己干了什么。之前读过哈佛教授 whiteside的文章<Whitesides’ Group: Writing a Paper>, 里面就讲到了这个写文章的事情的目的。写文章就是把自己的想法卖出去。下面摘取一下文章的内容:“A paper is an organized description of hypotheses, data, and conclusions, intended to instruct the paper. papers are a central part of a research. If your research does not generate papers, it might just as well not have been done. ‘Interesting and unpublished’ is equivalent to ‘non-exist.’”

Realize that your objective in research is to formulate and test hypotheses, to draw conclusions from these tests, and to teach these conclusions to others. Your objective is not to ‘collect data’.

A paper is not just an archival device for storing a completed research program; it is also a structure for planning your research in progress. If you clearly understand the purpose and form of a paper, it can be immensely useful to you in organizing and conduction your research. A good outline for the paper is also a good plan for the research program. You should write and rewrite the plans /outlines throughout the course of the research. At the beginning, you will have the mostly plan; at the end, mostly outline. the continuous effort to understand, analyze, summarize, and reformulate hypotheses on paper will be immensely more efficient for you than a process in which you collect data and only start to organize them when their collection is ‘complete’.”

多读读这篇文章,对于理解学术写作的帮助还是很大的。
