Event description


Why do you want to write for journals? What is your purpose? Are you writing for research assessment? Or to make a difference? Are you writing to have an impact factor or to have an impact? Do you want to develop a profile in a specific area? Will this determine which journals you write for? Have you taken their impact factors into account? Have you researched other researchers in your field – where have they published recently? Which group or conversation can you see yourself joining?

The objective of this Writing Research Workshop is to demystify the journal process. The workshop will cover different types of writing for different purposes; the writing of articles appropriate for journal submission; identifying and scoping out potential journals for your work and the peer review process after submission.

Attendees will work in small groups in order to clarify the 'take-home message' from their practice and research. We will work with paper-plans, lists and mind maps for drawing out relationships between different parts of a potential paper, explain how to create a paragraph plan, and how to come up with a catchy, searchable title title.

The fourth in the series of The Cass Research Workshop events. The series, which covers a range or topics from practice as research to academic writing and book-publishing, is intended for Cass Staff and Postgaduate Students to gain key skills in academic research for artists, designers, writers and architects.
