Content:

What is it? A three part workshop based on practical activities aimed to provide structure, advice and motivation through writing a paper for publication.  Each workshop is a full day, with at least four weeks between meetings.  Participants will be expected to work on their papers between the workshops.  The series will include peer-to-peer review and advice from other group members as well as an experienced course tutor.  The workshop series takes an intensive but intellectually supportive approach, drawing research on academic writing, evidenced in the education and linguistic literature. 

Who is it for? Researchers, experienced or novice, who have research they wish to write-up for scholarly publication, i.e. you have collected your data and are in a position to write up the analysis. 

What will it achieve? Participants should have a completed draft of their research paper by the end of the workshop series. In addition, you will learn more about the process of research writing.  

Important: Participants need to bring a copy of an article from the journal they wish to submit their paper to, as well as any material, such as literature searches or data analysis, which they can draw on through the workshop. 

Sessions will cover:

  • Planning
  • Understanding the writing process
  • Breaking down the structure of papers to generate writing goals
  • Overcoming the difficulties in writing research
  • Techniques for being an effective writer 

 

Tutor: Dr Daniel Soule, Lecturer in Academic Writing, Glasgow Caledonian University.
