Publish before you Perish! Writing for Scholarly Journals: How to 'get published'

Scholarly writing is an essential academic skill, and can be useful for practitioners and others who want to share achievements in practice or debate change in policy. This half day workshop will focus on the process of writing for publication from the editorial perspective. It will include short presentations, an interactive writing exercise and open discussion. You will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn the importance of good grammar
  • Consider how to write with a journal and readers in mind
  • Explore mind mapping
  • Develop a methodical approach to writing an article
  • Learn how to produce a working abstract


Delegates are encouraged to bring along an idea for an article, a title, and/or a summary/abstract of work they are seeking to publish. Handouts will be provided.
