As our world becomes busier and more interconnected, people's lives take different trajectories towards new futures. This socio-cultural shift also affects our well being. But has our way of understanding individual health and wellness also shifted to adapt to the changes we see in ourselves and others?

'Writing for publication' training, Budapest, 25th and 26th January 2018
Simon Robinson's picture

 

 

Aim: This short, six-session course for scientists intends to visit the research article, considering issues before writing, and how these elements are then reflected in actual published research articles in your disciplines. You will be asked to apply these considerations to your own proposed writing and research articles.

Preparation/Materials: You need to select two journal article/s of your choice, which you consider as being well written, and which are relevant to your research. You will also need to bring any writing related to the research you are doing currently, or maybe a recently finished paper. Essentially, something you can reflect on after discussions in class on the themes below.

Outcome: You will be more aware of the expectations that research publication demands, and will be able to identify more precisely how writers approach and deal with these expectations.

Dates: 25th and 26th January 2018

Venue: Central European University, 9 Nádor utca, 1051 Budapest, Hungary

Web-site: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/writing-for-publication-training-tickets-35476595452

Registration: Mandatory, via the above web-site. Deadline for registration is 2017-11-15

Micro-grants: Marie Curie Alumni Association members can apply for an up to €400 micro-grant, which can contribute to travel and accomodation costs for this course.
