Schleifer said they hope to make the course a permanent part of the Graduate College's course catalog.
In 1997, Schleifer became graduate director of the OU English department. He felt that a course on scholarly writing would be very helpful for English graduate students and began teaching such a course, he said.
Schleifer and Barker began working together around ten years ago to teach the course for both the History of Science department and the English department.

...
Schleifer taught a two-week version of the course in Singapore in the spring of 2010 by himself for junior faculty members. Five out of the six junior faculty members had their articles published at the end of the course, Schleifer said.
"Our aim is to professionalize graduate students," he said.
Students often have to teach themselves how to apply what they've learned in a practical way, so Schleifer said they hope this course teaches students how to do it systematically rather than haphazardly.
...
Schleifer said he hopes this course can become a model for other universities.
"I think this can really change graduate education in important ways," he said.
Additionally, Schleifer said that this course has helped graduate students complete their degrees.
"OU has been very strong in supporting undergraduate students, and properly so, for a long time, and the college is trying to find practical ways to increase support for graduate students," he said.
