CHASE Essentials: Writing Articles for Publication in Peer-Reviewed Journals

Writing Articles for International Publication in Peer-Reviewed Journals 

A one-day workshop suitable for researchers in the UK and USA aiming to publish in peer-reviewed journals. The course is designed to develop skills with practical advice and exercises on presenting a scholarly argument and highlighting your contribution to the field. It includes valuable insights into what journal editors look for, the peer-review process, and the production and afterlife of a journal article, with implications for what to submit.

The workshop is best suited to those in the latter stages of a PhD.

Please note, the assumption is that those who register for the training will be working on an article in progress, so that they can do the various exercises (e.g. identifying the readership and how they will benefit, testing out their argument against journal editors’ key criteria, etc) with reference to a particular piece of work.
