Writing for publication is a full year course offered by the Office of Doctoral Studies, Faculty of Education and Social Work, for research students in the faculty in their final year of candidature. The course is made up of 13 two hour workshops spread over two semesters. The workshops will be held on Thursdays from 5 to 7pm.
The aim of the workshops is to mentor research students in the writing for publication process. By the end of the first half of the course, all students will be expected to have submitted an article for publication to an international peer-reviewed journal in their area of research. In the second half of the course reviewers’ reports on students’ work will be discussed and strategies will be provided for responding to these reviews.
To undertake this course, students must have an article they will be able to work on during the workshops, and be willing to present their work and their reviewers’ reports on their work to the group for discussion and feedback.
Students will form writing groups where they will read and provide each other with feedback on their work. Each session will be made up of input, discussion, and peer-feedback on students’ texts. Topics and dates will be as below. Students must commit to attending all of these workshops.
