This workshop is aimed at research students who are preparing to publish in a public health journal. The workshop will use published articles to examine the structure of the different sections that make up a typical journal article. The purpose of each section will be examined and the logical stages within each section will be illustrated and explained. The language used to develop these stages will also be analysed. Students will be expected to work through exercises on structure and language. They should also bring with them an area of their research that they are planning to publish. This could simply be a topic or a rough title or a draft of a section. Students will then be asked to draft a possible introduction to their paper using the structures and language exemplified in the workshop. The workshop will also address the issue of appropriate academic style for publishing in this field.
Web conferencing / remote access will not be available for this workshop given the structure and presentation style. Also, as this is the first time we are offering this topic, it is a trial to see how beneficial students find it.
Facilitators: Dr Jo Lander and Dr Helen Drury
