Academic Excellence (ACE) Series: The Process and Craft of Writing a Journal Article

Room 192 Education

Event Type: Conference/Workshop

Speaker Information: Professor Jennifer Nelson

This 1-hour workshop will use materials from Wendy Belcher’s ‘Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks’ workbook and resources to advance your academic writing. I will open by talking about how it’s improved my own writing. Topics covered will include: addressing writing habits and anxieties; strategies for polishing each section of your article (or, dissertation if you want to adapt lessons here to your dissertation writing); common errors authors make when submitting articles; and how to address reviewers’ (or advisors’) comments in your revisions. If possible, come with a paper in mind that you would like to discuss.
