In this Workshop, doctoral researchers will prepare a mock-up of their first submission of an article to a journal. We divide our sessions according to the key sections of an article: abstract, introduction (problem), literature review, theory & hypotheses, data & methods (design), results (analysis), discussion. However, we address these sections in the order we suggest is most conducive for producing an article: 1) data, methods & results, 2) literature review, theory & hypotheses, 3) abstract, introduction, discussion. For each session, we will present the key functions and tasks to be accomplished. This overview will be followed by short presentations by the participants based on: 1) their submitted empirical analysis (April 19th session), and 2) their submitted strategic outline/ literature review (April 20th session). The instructors will provide detailed feedback on the empirical analysis and theoretical framing in the Q&A portion of these classes. For this reason, we ask for submission of the empirical analysis (Just a printout of the results, with data source, & if you have it, the descriptive statistics- this can be very simple but we need something to work from) and the strategic outline of the literature review (this can be made with cut & paste from the prospectus in a few hours- but it must group the literature into three major approaches and set you up to say something different) by April 13th if possible. For those attending the multi-level methods course, an analysis from the course may be submitted on April 18th. In addition, participants should identify their target journal for their article, and a model article from that journal that will serve as their point of reference in drafting their article mock-up.
