Academic Writing: Raising Your Article Quality

This session discusses how to maximise the quality of journal articles in order for participants to achieve the highest possible level of research publication for their writing. The workshop is highly interactive, with writing exercises and reflection built into the materials, in order for participants to try out some of the writing strategies under discussion. The overall aim is to establish the criteria for writing top quality journal articles and to offer participants feedback on their next planned journal article.

Who should attend?
Research Active Staff (Research, Academic or Teaching terms & conditions) who want to develop their understanding of journal article writing in relation to article quality.

We do not accept applications from postgraduates or research students. Students should refer to the Student Career and Skills website for details of workshops designed specifically to meet their needs.

Workshop Objectives:

  • To understand the key qualities of top-rated journal articles and how these differ from lower ranked research publications.
  • To identify how to build on your existing writing practice to achieve the highest quality research in your field.
  • To enable participants to receive feedback on an abstract for your next article.
  • To help participants produce a take-away/plan of action for your next article.

Feedback from the May 2018 cohort.
