At the end of this course the student will be able to appropriately evaluate a scientific text. More specifically, student will by acquainted with basic framework, which enables her to identify the general methodological, argumentative and stylistic shortcomings of academic writing, regardless of its topic. Students' sensitivity to such phenomena has a direct effect on the production and evaluation of their own texts, typically dissertations.
