Event description

Description

This workshop will be led by Dr Jane Rees, Head of the Research Development Team in Research Policy, who worked as Senior editor at the journal Nature before joining the University. She will give an insider’s overview of the editorial process, giving tips about how to get the editor on your side. There will be a chance to work on developing an abstract to get key messages clearly articulated, and plenty of time for questions.

Limited places available.

Notes for attendees: To make the most of this workshop, we would like you to bring along a few copies of an unpublished paper abstract. Ideally one that you are currently working on. Alternatively, you could bring along one that a colleague/peer (in your field) is drafting/has unpublished. If your colleague(s) provide an unpublished abstract, please inform them it will be used for development purposes only, and they may get some useful and constructive feedback too!

You will be asked during the workshop to participate in an activity in which you will use an unpublished abstracts (yours and those of other participants). Therefore, you (and/or your peers) will need to be willing to share the abstract with other participants, and be prepared to give and receive feedback on specific aspect of it. All materials will be treated with full confidentially. Note, all printed copies will be returned to the owner/supplier at the end of the workshop. If you do not have a suitable abstract in preparation, you can bring along a published abstract from a paper that you know well, however, having your own (or one familiar to yourself) ‘in-progress’ abstract would help to enhance the experience.
