Doctoral student writing development workshop
Workshop focus: To demonstrate the reverse engineering approach to writing a journal article through an interactive personalised workshop.
There will be senior academics present who will act as mentors throughout the workshop.
Workshop outcome: At the end of the workshop, participants will have a full draft of the structure of their article that reflects the requirements of the target journal.
Requirements: To participate fully in this workshop, attendees must have a journal article in progress. This means basic literature conducted, target journal selected, data analysis complete (or conceptual framework developed).
Participants need to bring the following:
- Printed copies of three articles from the target journal that have been published in the last 5 years which use the same analysis technique (or conceptual approach)
- Electronic copies of any past drafts of the article, data analysis, literature review
Preparation: Participants to complete the attached powerpoint which summarises their article and send to Dr Jo Previte to collate.
Structure of workshop:
- Brief overview of reverse-engineering process
- Lightening talks (each participant speaks on their topic for no longer than 3 minutes using the attached powerpoint slide) . Clarification questions are asked of the participants by the mentors present.
- Reverse engineering process is outlined, at each step the participants will be asked to undertake the step on their own paper.
- For the remaining time, participants will be able to work on their paper individually and ask mentors for assistance when needed.
Morning Tea and Lunch will be provided
