This workshop by Josie Dixon (Lucian Consulting) focuses on the key criteria involved in journal editors’ selection processes and peer-review, and how to meet them. Based on the inside knowledge of an experienced academic publisher, it is designed to develop essential skills in writing articles in order to increase researchers’ chances of placing their work in premium scholarly journals.
The workshop is built around examples from the participants’ draft articles, and covers the use of English for scholarly purposes, presenting an argument and addressing international audiences, as well as practical issues on what editors look for, the peer review process, copyright, licensing and open access.
The training features an intensive session on academic writing in English for non-native speakers, focusing on effective scholarly communication in an international context and writing an abstract. The material is closely tailored to the needs of the group, with a mixture of presentation, discussion and interactive exercises.
