Write that journal article in 7 days

All research students should think seriously about publishing during their degree. The job market is competitive in academia and your CV should show evidence that you are making an impact on your field already. Exposing your work to peer review can give you more confidence about the robustness of your findings and your writing. In this workshop we will look at a ‘fast track’ method for getting a journal article together from work you already have. We will explore some publishing strategies and do a series of exercises designed to help you give your article focus and touch on the tricky subject of sharing authorship. Lastly we will talk about some alternative writing techniques which may speed up the process of producing an article.

The workshop will cover:

  • Different genres of article writing and what purposes they are used for.
  • The role of generative writing and how you can use it to speed up the writing process and produce ideas.
  • Planning and structuring techniques to make your writing time more effective.
  • Insight into how the article publishing process works and what you can do to ‘market’ your article once you have written it.

Audience: mid to late HASS discipline HDR candidates
