IN PERSON & PARTICIPATIVE: Jumpstart writing your journal article, based on your thesis research (Humanities and Social sciences) Part One

 

About this workshop

This workshop welcomes any student or staff or emerging researcher in the Humanities and Social Sciences, who would like to start writing a journal article.

The workshop space gives participants the chance to do searches online for information that will help them plan their journal article content and then start searches for appropriate journals.

Participants will also get a chance to start writing a draft abstract, story an argument and do any other related writing, with personalised feedback from the facilitator and peers in the workshop itself.  You will leave feeling confident about tackling the start of your journal writing process.

Input covered:

  • First steps: The process of Journal publishing
  • Defining what you want to say (from your thesis or other academic work);
  • How to tell an academic story using argument in a journal article;
  • How to find a journal to publish your work;
  • Finding samples of excellent journal writing.

  • Interactive part: Writing what you want to say/telling the story
  • Searching for a journal (with assistance from facilitator, online);
  • Drafting the story line and argument;
  • Drafting a messy abstract.

* Due to UCT being a contact university and with Covid restrictions easing, the first part of this workshop series is now only being offered in person in semester 2.
