Academic writing: From first draft to publication
PhD workshop on academic writing with Lynn P. Nygaard.
The workshop will be an opportunity for the students to reflect on the central challenges of academic writing and publishing, with focus on the students current writing and their PhD thesis. The workshop will take participants systematically through some of the main challenges of academic writing and publishing: audience, core argument and structure, as well as getting words on paper, handling feedback, and picking a journal.
The workshop is open to PhD students at the Faculty of Medicine. Participants must bring with them a copy of a paper they would like to work on (very rough drafts are encouraged). They may send a copy of the draft to the facilitator beforehand to give her an idea of what you are writing about and how far you have progressed.
