From 19:30 to 21:00 on January 16, 2023, the SSI-L Project Team held a webinar via Tencent Meeting on the team’s academic publication. The meeting was presided over by Dr. Lin Jing, director of the Science Development Department of the Collaborative Innovation Center of Assessment for Basic Education Quality at Beijing Normal University. Those who have participated in the discussion were disciplinary guidance experts and faculty representatives from those partner schools whose projects were selected as excellent cases.
Lin Jing congratulated the successful closure of the 2022 Academic Annual Conference on Socio-Scientific Issues Learning with the joint efforts of all. She hoped that the team will further refine their research outcomes. Zhang Letong, a member of the Project Office, presented the theme-based and case-based teaching papers of four journals at the seminar. Lin Jing analyzed the structure and content of different types of journal articles, and made suggestions on how to write journal articles. She pointed out that article writing is different from annual conference presentation. Everyone needs to further refine their main ideas, find viewpoints to support those ideas, and reorganize their presentation content to demonstrate their argument. Moreover, different journals have different styles. Participants can focus on the target journals and write down their articles in reference to specific samples and the requirements of different journals.
Disciplinary guidance experts Tan Yongping and Zhou Youxiang also offered suggestions on article writing in combination with specific journals. Participants further discussed their article writing. Lin Jing once again emphasized that the main idea is the “soul” of an article, and suggested that everyone sort out their presentation in a reasonable way, and use it as the “material” of the article to support the main idea, and hence develop a precise argumentation process.
It is hoped that the experts and project team members will further reflect and refine their research outcomes, keep going forward from a new starting point in 2023, and continue to invest in practical exploration.
Wishing you all a prosperous Year of the Rabbit!
