Writing for publication in academic journals
A series of workshops in Auckland, Wellington and Dunedin presented by Dr Sue Starfield provides practical advice and feedback to researchers about writing and reviewing articles in journals.
About the workshop
The aim of this workshop is to offer participants a range of tools and suggestions for structuring and writing a journal article as well as for navigating the peer review process.
Sue Starfield will provide advice to researchers based on her experience of editing an international, peer-reviewed journal and then discuss how article introductions and discussion sections are typically structured.
The workshop will end with a brief opportunity to provide feedback on another participant’s draft article and receive feedback on one’s own article. Participants are asked to bring along:
- an article they like from a journal they would like to publish in
- a draft of an article or part of an article they are working on that they would be happy to let another participant look at and provide feedback on.
Registration for these workshops is free, but numbers may be limited.
