Writing and Submitting a Journal Article in 12 Weeks - Session 1 of 2
|Dates:||5 July 2023|
|Times:||13:00 - 15:00|
|What is it:||Seminar|
|Who is it for:||Current University students|
|Speaker:||Dr David Firth|
Run as a two-part lecture with Q&A, as part of the Arts Methods workshop series, this training event offers two sessions designed to help you revise completed research, such as an existing thesis chapter or conference paper, into a publishable article. The training guides you through successful techniques, approaches, and examples to planning, structuring, completing, and submitting a journal article. The training will be most helpful to participants who have a clear piece of work in mind that they can transform into publishable material – ideally over the 12-week summer period from July to September.
The sessions are specifically targeted for researchers in the advanced stages of their doctoral research and who are ready and able to turn a well-developed piece of research (i.e., research for a chapter of your PhD, an expandable conference paper, or an MA essay that received a high grade) into an article.
This first session will cover how to get started, selecting a journal, contacting a journal, journal and reviewer expectations, completing your literature review, pinpointing your intervention, and writing your abstract.
Please register in advance to book your place. The Zoom link will be sent out directly to registered participants on the day.
These session are run by Dr David Firth, who currently runs the School’s Skills Training Programme for PGT students, as well as the Arts Methods ‘From Chapter to Article’ workshop series. Dr Firth is an Associate Editor with the Journal for Postcolonial Writing and the Literary Encyclopedia, and manages Doctor Edit (www.doctoredit.co.uk), which provides proofreading, copyediting and academic services.
