Publishing with Impact is a two-day workshop designed to help you write journal papers efficiently for publication in specialised and high impact journals. You will learn to:  

  • Write clear sentences and paragraphs
  • Use the structure of a journal paper to highlight your results and ‘take-home message’
  • Choose the ‘right’ journal to maximise impact and influence
  • Craft cover letters and responses to referees

The course is suitable for anyone who wishes to improve their writing and the impact of their scientific publications but will particularly benefit PhD students and early career researchers with a paper in preparation.

The workshop is facilitated by Camilla Myers.

Camilla has been involved in scientific writing, publishing and editing for over 25 years across a broad range of subjects.  

  • Authored 9 journal articles, and understands the difficulties faced by young research scientists.
  • As Editor of 4 biological journals over 10 years with CSIRO Publishing she has a deep understanding of what contributes to successful publications.
  • As a production editor with McGraw-Hill Book Company, she learned the importance of a logical structure, as well as grammar and style, in scientific and technical writing.
  • As book commissioning editor at McGraw-Hill Book Company and Chapman & Hall, she learned how to listen and quickly gain knowledge of key aspects of new subjects, and how to apply broad principles in achieving goals across a wide spectrum of research fields.
  • Camilla became a full-time writing workshop facilitator in 2011 and holds the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment as well as the Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA).
