How to Write an Academic Paper and Get it Published new [Full] 10:00 - 16:00 CCTL, Revans Room

The course takes an evidence-based approach to writing. Participants will learn that publishing is a game and the more they understand the rules of the game the higher their chances of becoming publishing authors. They will learn that writing an academic article and getting it published may help with their careers but it does not make them better researchers, or cleverer than they were before their paper was accepted; it simply means they have played the game well.

Suitable for researchers in any discipline who are keen to learn how to write academic papers and articles efficiently and/or who have had papers rejected and are not really sure why.

If you want a better chance of your name on a paper, this is for you!

Trainer Olivia Timbs is an award-winning editor and journalist with over 30 years' experience gained from working on national newspapers and for a range of specialist health and medical journals.

Profile - Raising and Networking for Researchers new [Full] 10:00 - 16:00 CCTL, Revans Room

This is a day-long session to help researchers develop strategies for making networking part of a successful career, whether inside or outside research. It focuses on thinking about all of the researchers’ working life as a route to networking, rather than being a course about 'personal impact' in conference coffee breaks.

This course is suitable for both, researchers wishing to stay in academia or moving away from it.
