S1 Writing the Methodology Chapter in the Social Sciences - Dr Chris Beighton - Tuesday 5th December, 11am-12.30pm.

In this session we will discuss the purpose and content of the methodology section of a doctoral thesis. The session will include :some of the different ways in which the chapter can fit in with and reflect the rest of the paper; a suggested structure for the methodology chapter; ways in which the methodology chapter can contribute to the doctorate’s originality; the main areas which the methodology section should cover, and the issues this raises. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion, and time to read and discuss examples from successful, recent doctoral work. Feel free to bring your own work in progress along.


S2 Writing workshop - Professor Adrian Holliday - Thursday 22nd February, 11am-2pm

This workshop will begin with the basics of what academic writing is and how it differs from other forms of writing. It will focus, at the sentence and paragraph level, on the need to be tightly evidence-based in literature and data and careful about the claims that can be made. We will also consider how to incorporate multiple communicative forms such as the visual and fictional. The overall orientation will be qualitative, but with principles that can be applied to all other modes.


S3 Getting Started with Academic Publishing - Dr Soeren Keil - Tuesday 12th December 9 -10.30 ; REPEATED Tuesday May 1st 1.30-3pm.

This session reflects on the techniques, methods and etiquette of academic publishing. Areas covered will include writing academic book reviews, developing research papers for publication, approaching journals and academic publishers, revising and preparing the Masters or PhD thesis for publication as a monograph or a series of journal articles, and submitting a manuscript. It also familiarises researchers with the academic peer-review process.


S4 Peer Reviewing in the Social Sciences and Humanities Professor Shane Blackman - Tuesday 8th May, 11am-12.30pm

The session introduces students to the components of peer review



S5 Navigating peer review: challenges, responses & publishing Dr Joanna Young (The Scientific Editing Company), Thursday 14th December, 1-4pm

All researchers will encounter peer review during their career, both as an author of research papers, books, fellowship applications or grants and as an expert who has been asked to review one of these documents. This workshop will introduce researchers to the peer review system, the process, the complexities, the responsibilities of the author and the reviewer and how to get the most out of the experience. An awareness and knowledge of the peer review system is important so that early career researchers know what to expect when they submit their first research paper. Equally, understanding how to critically assess a research manuscript for quality, style, content, novelty and relevance gives researchers an insight into how cutting edge research is assessed and published. What should you look for in a manuscript? How can you optimise your chances of success as an author? In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the academic publishing and peer review system through short presentations, discussions and peer review exercises. The workshop is suitable for PhD students and early career researchers who are writing a manuscript for publication or who are interested in finding out more about the peer review process.

Please note that our sessions are available to Christ Church University staff and students only. You must register for an event with a CCCU email account to attend.
