Description

How to Write about your Research for Publication TT 19

This event is open to members of Oxford University, Social Sciences Division DPhil students and research staff

This workshop introduces the basics of writing for publication for DPhil students looking to publish for the first time. The tutor – Patrick Brindle – takes a publishing-insider’s perspective and examines how you can improve your research writing to improve the chances of being accepted for publication and then heighten the chance that your article, book chapter or research report will be read and cited by as wide and significant an audience as possible.

The course will cover:

- Practical writing tips to improve the impact of your research publications

- How academic publishing operates and what this means for new writers

- A guide to how research writing is discovered and read online

- Insight into specific narrative tools for making research writing compelling, meaningful and vivid

- Exercises and case studies to deploy/reflect on your own writing in the class

Pre-requisites

Participants should bring a short example of their writing to work on, preferably on a laptop. While it is not compulsory for participants to bring such a manuscript it will help students get the most from the workshop if they do.




Applications must be made using an Oxford University email address otherwise they will be rejected.

As part of the registration we will ask for your mobile number so that we can send text reminders to you.
