Writing for publication

24 October 2017, 13:30 - 16:00
Cambridge campus

Professor Mick Healey

Professor Mick Healey, higher education consultant and researcher, will lead this workshop on writing for publication in refereed journals.

This interactive workshop focuses on writing for publication in refereed journals. Specific examples will focus on writing about the scholarship of teaching and learning, and research into learning and teaching in higher education. 

The workshop will give you opportunities to:

  • reflect on your reasons for wanting to publish
  • choose a suitable journal
  • plan and structure your paper
  • draft the title and abstract
  • explore some of the characteristics of successful writing for publication
  • examine research evidence on what journal editors are looking for.

The workshop is highly participative, focusing on making participants more confident and productive in their writing. It is particularly appropriate for staff in academic and support positions and PhD students who have relatively little experience of writing for publication.

Participants should bring four copies of a draft title and brief abstract (150-200 words) on an article they plan to write.
