Writing your Journal Article: Draft to Submission in Eight Weeks

How these classes are organised

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 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.

What you will learn

At the end of the workshop series you will have a better understanding of:

  • how to strengthen the structure of your journal article
  • how to present your evidence
  • how to open and conclude your article
  • how to advance your argument
  • time management
  • journal selection 
  • how to target your article to a specific journal

The next course starts on Tuesday 15 January 2019 and runs for eight weeks.
