Get your paper published
This 1-day workshop is based on extensive linguistic research into the essential elements of successfully published peer-reviewed research papers.
The workshop guides you through our step-by-step formula that takes the uncertainty, confusion and inefficiency out of the paper-writing process, regardless of your level of experience.
Who is this workshop for?
- Honours students
- Postgraduate research students
- Junior postdoctoral fellows
- Healthcare professionals
- Anyone from any institution who wants to improve their confidence, efficiency and impact in writing original research.
- You must have watched our 6-minute tutorial on ‘how to shave hours off the paper-writing process‘, and have followed the simple steps within to get your data ready for write-up at the workshop. When you register for this workshop we will send you reminders about this prerequisite.
What to bring to the workshop
- A set of analyzed original research results that are ready to be written up as a paper, or an early draft of an original manuscript or systematic review (not a narrative review).
- Pen and paper (or a laptop computer if you prefer to work electronically. If you need to recharge during the workshop, please be mindful of minimizing trip hazards).
- A paper (or electronic) copy of an original research article or systematic review – with or without meta-analysis (not a narrative review) on a topic similar to your own, from a journal you’d like to publish your research in. If you prefer to work electronically on a laptop computer rather than with pen and paper, please ensure you have access to software that enables you to quickly add clearly-visible text to electronic documents.
