Event description

Description

Presenter: Dr Jennifer Allanson, Tuplespace Ltd

This is a 3-hour interactive workshop for postgraduate researchers in the 1st or 2nd year of their PhD process.


Dissemination of research output is a crucial component of your research career. The peer-review process associated with publication is a great way to get feedback on your research-in-progress. Publishing and having your work peer-reviewed during your PhD will be looked on favourably during your PhD viva.

So how can you improve your chances of successfully navigating the peer-review process and getting published?

Through a mixture of practical exercises, theory and discussion this workshop aims to prepare participants for publication. We’ll consider planning, pitching and practical writing issues. We’ll explore formatting, appropriate use of language, correct mechanisms for citing, quoting and paraphrasing in order to avoid unintentional plagiarism. We’ll consider different routes to publication and how to know when and where to pitch an idea. Finally we’ll also consider publishing our work in the larger context of the UK’s Research Excellent Framework (REF).
