How to Write an Academic Paper and Get it Published new Tue 9 Jun 2020   10:00 CANCELLED

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!

This session will examine this process and explores strategies to help you improve the clarity of your writing.
