Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.

Sergey Dyachkov, Postgraduate Student, Institute of Mathematics and Computer Sciences

I was very impressed with the opportunity given by the university to study some practical tips of writing scientific articles in English. The Strategies for Cohesion course contains useful information of making the ideas presented in the article clear and logical for reader, increasing the chance to publish the article. This course will be very useful for authors, who write a scientific article in English first time to make their texts intelligible and presentation of obtained results conventional for the English reader. Also, it will be useful for authors who have already published in English for systematization of their best practices.
