Academic writing and publishing is a critical aspect of being a successful scholar, with promotion, tenure, and effective teaching relying on publications in leading journals. Reviewing for journals is a crucial related activity. Many academics, in particular at their early stages of the academic career, find academic writing a challenge, for a variety of reasons. This workshop is intended to help overcome this challenge. The knowledge provided during the workshop will guide and inform future reviewing, writing and publishing.
The workshop will nourish and sustain professional development in a range of explicit and implicit ways; it aims to energized participants’ feeling about academic writing, to unveil the apparent mystery of publication process, and help academics make learned decision about their writing on the path to publication.
