How to convert your Research paper into a newspaper article by Sahnaz
An extremely helpful and guiding session by Mrs. Aiyer on “How to convert your Research paper into a newspaper article” made us acquainted with a lot of interesting facts of the real world.
Starting from how to assess and then selecting a relevant newspaper for our research paper, and then moving on to learn how to make our article “relevant” for the selected newspaper; we had a lot to explore in every minute.
We definitely knew that a newspaper article has to be crisp, precise and attractive, but how is that made into one is what we learnt. Ranging from the five “W’s” to being a devil’s advocate to drafting and re-drafting till we attain perfection; all came from the expertise of Mrs. Aiyer.
As an exemplary exercise, we were made to give a self-description in not more than 5 lines. From what each person spoke, all the other people had something to criticise and something to appreciate; basically all had something to learn.
Amidst the session, there were points discussed/mentioned which also gave us an insight into how the print media works: a rare opportunity for all the aspiring journalists amongst us!
So, all-in-all, it was not only a very enriching and helpful experience w.r.t. knowing how to convert our Research paper into a newspaper article, but also greatly to an extent in certain aspects of how to actually research and re-research.
