Writing Articles for International Publication
Date: 14-15 October
Södertörn University organizes a two-day workshop on Writing Articles for International Publication in Peer-Reviewed Journals. The workshop is held on campus, if possible given the corona situation (if it has to be held via zoom it will be scheduled over 3 days instead, 13-15 October). It is mainly geared at doctoral students and junior faculty (scholars who have finished their PhD within the last five years).
The workshop tutor, Josie Dixon, has a background in academic publishing from Palgrave MacMillan and Cambridge University Press. During the last decade she has specialized in giving lectures, courses and workshops at universities in Europe and the US. Last year, she gave a workshop at Södertörn University, and the participants were very enthusiastic and considered it very well invested time for their future academic careers.
As the number of participants is set to maximum 16, register ASAP in order to make sure to have a place. If necessary, we will also set up a waiting list for late registrations.
The workshop is organized by the Advisory Board for Internationalisation in cooperation with the Department of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education as well as directors of studies from Critical and Cultural Theory and Historical Studies.
Phd students and junior scholars from all research areas and schools at Södertörn University are welcome!
- Why do we publish?
- Where should we publish?
- What do journal editors look for?
These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this workshop for researchers seeking to publish in international peer-reviewed journals. It focuses on the key criteria involved in journal editors’ selection processes and peer-review. Based on the inside knowledge of an experienced academic publisher, it is designed to develop essential skills in writing articles in order to increase researchers’ chances of placing their work in premium scholarly journals.

Feedback from former participants on this workshop:
“Suited my needs perfectly. A wide-ranging overview of the process, enhanced by very specific, targeted exercises. Excellent - very clear, but also witty and entertaining.” (participant from Freie Universität, Berlin)
“Excellent! Clear, informative, appropriate examples, accurate answers to individual/group questions. Very knowledgeable about publishing trends.” (participant from Universität Heidelberg)
“Very constructive focus at the micro level (language) as well as macro level (formulating your contribution to scholarship)” (participant from the University of Ghent)
“Initially, I was worried that the workshop would be an exercise in the academic game of strategic publishing and ranking. To my delight, the workshop instead provided hands on skills in writing different kinds of texts in an accurate way with the reader constantly in mind.” (participant from Södertörn University)
