Workshop Overview:

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.
