Workshop description

This workshop is designed as an intensive session to redirect writing skills learned during the PhD, highlighting the differences between writing a thesis and writing for publication, to increase researchers’ chances of acceptance in peer-reviewed journals. It includes practical advice and exercises on highlighting the contribution to the field, presenting a scholarly argument, and writing for an international readership. It also offers insights into journal editors’ criteria, the peer-review process, and the publication process and afterlife of a journal article, with implications for what to submit.

This 3-day online course combines live group work on Zoom, offline writing exercises, discussion exercises in breakout groups, and pairwork enabling mutual editing and the exchange of feedback between participants.  The writing exercises will include drafting and editing an abstract, exploring a range of styles for opening sentences, developing confident forms of citation, and writing a strong conclusion developing the implications and applications of your research for maximum impact.
