A lecture at the college of engineering about the determinants of writing a scientific research
Dr. Rabab Hameed Shgedl gave a lecture at the department of electrical engineering at the college of engineering, university of Baghdad entitled “determinants of the scientific writing” with the attendance of a number of teaching faculty, students and engineers. This lecture is part of a series of seminars hosted by the department to promote the scientific and educational awareness concerning scientific writing and researches written in English. Dr. Rabab Hameed dealt also with the difficulties faced by researchers when writing, usually its style and approach where she stressed that it should be characterized with professionalism that is not devoid of simplicity and she defined the word “search” as a set of information about a specific thing, associated with science. The researcher called the writer to address any subject in the same manner he deals with any scientific dilemma, stressing on analyzing the determinants of the scientific writing which are: reading, coordination, technology and style. The researcher hinted that scientific research is the regular method adopted to gather reliable information, taking notes and objective analysis of such information by following specific and scientific approaches for the purpose of making sure of its validity, modifying them or add new ones so as to reach at some laws and theories and predicting such phenomena and controlling their causes so as to reach a solution for any specific problem or discovering new facts through accurate information. Dr. Rabab stated that scientific research is the only way to know something about the world and that (Scientific Research) is an expression defining a process that is based on scientific method including observation, taking notes, describing events and forming hypotheses that are organized steps to discovery and translation of facts resulting in understanding events, trends and theories. The lecture ended with participation in extensive debate of students and faculty staff, calling for giving other lectures in the same context.
