Writing up your research for publication

Businessman Writing

TUU Postgraduate Council and TasPostgrads will hold a skills workshop this month entitled "Writing up your research for publication."

This has been the most requested skills workshop topic for the past few years, as publishing and communicating research is something all postgraduates aim for regardless of discipline.

As methods and aims of publishing are drastically different for the arts and the sciences, the workshop is split into two helpful sessions.

For the Arts

With guest speaker Assoc. Prof. Keith Jacobs, from the UTAS School of Sociology and Social Work.

Assoc. Prof. Keith Jacobs has published widely on housing and urban policy issues, is the author of The Dynamics of Local Housing Policy published by Ashgate Press (1999) and Social Constructionism in Housing Research (2004) edited with Jim Kemeny and Tony Manzi (Ashgate Press). Keith's most recent publications include: a monograph - Experience and Representation: Contemporary Perspectives on Australian Migration (Ashgate Press, 2011) and an edited collection (with Jeff Malpas) - Between the Ocean and the Outback: Cosmopolitanism in Contemporary Australia (UWA Publishing 2011). Keith is also a member of the editorial board for the journal Housing Studies, and the international advisory board of Housing, Theory and Society.

For the Sciences

With guest speaker Prof. Barbara Nowak, from the Australian Maritime College.

Scientific papers are the main method of communication in science. Strong publication record is essential for a successful academic career. In this workshop we will discuss the process of writing and publishing scientific papers. The strategies for publication success will be outlined. Professor Barbara Nowak has published more than 150 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. She is Associate Editor of two scientific journals and a member of Editorial Board of another journal. She reviews manuscripts for 25 journals on regular basis.
