Abstract

The authors outline the processes involved in scholarly writing in mathematics and science education research. Covers the fundamentals of writing such as grammatical errors and other common errors. The authors discuss scholarly writing at three levels: one for the author to be familiar with the mechanics of writing; the second relating to the flow of arguments within various sections of a dissertation; and the third relating to the integration of the entire work

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
