What is Writing your journal article: from draft to submission?
The aim is to get a journal article into publishable form.
The teachers will provide targeted materials and activities to help you push your chosen piece of writing towards completion within your chosen timeframe.
The sessions will address both rhetorical and stylistic issues related to drafting and revising your article such as:
- strengthening your structure
- presenting your evidence
- opening and concluding your article
- advancing your argument
They will also address practical concerns such as:
- time management
- journal selection
- targeting your article to a specific journal
The course is largely based on Wendy L. Belcher's book, Writing your journal article in 12 weeks (Sage, 2009) but also draws on other materials.
Wendy Belcher's book will be put on hold at the EUI Library for participants for the duration of this course.
