Writing Up your Research for Publication

Tailor your writing for publication

Whether you are a non-native or native English speaker, writing up your research in the format required for publication can be challenging. This workshop will help you to address the stages of writing a research article and the mechanics of the language, including writing problems commonly encountered by researchers.

You will have the opportunity to address issues related to grammar and writing styles with a trainer from the School of English and Languages. After learning techniques for developing a more concise writing style, you will have the opportunity to practise your proofreading skills, essential for publication success. The workshop will last for two hours and will be followed by an optional 60-minute session for one-to-one feedback on your own research writing. To receive feedback, you should bring an extract of an article draft to the workshop.
This workshop is open to ECRs in all disciplines but will be tailored to those aiming to publish research articles in journal publications. If you would like help with an alternative form of publishing for your research, please contact the RDP team to discuss this further.

By the end of the session, you will:
• be better able to identify the function of each sentence in a journal extract
• have experience of identifying and correcting various grammatical errors commonly found in early drafts of journal articles
• be more aware of the importance of thoroughly proofreading your draft before peer review
