Writing up your Research & Getting a Paper Published

A Webinar

Presented by: Professor Dan Remenyi

Thursday 30 September 2021

What this webinar is about

Writing up research presents an enormous challenge to many research degree candidates and to some academics when writing papers. Writing is a craft skill and to succeed as an academic this skill must be carefully cultivated. Furthermore, in today’s academic world, good research practice requires researchers to start thinking about how they will write up a dissertation or thesis from an early stage in the work. Gone are the days when researchers did not bother themselves with the write-up until after all the research work had been completed. By taking an ongoing approach to writing up the research, researchers find that the task facing them as they complete their degree is one of compiling the document which they will submit rather than having to face the enormous task of writing up from scratch.

To manage the process of an ongoing write-up a researcher needs to have a clear view of what is required and this needs to be converted into a programme of action. This webinar addresses all the necessary issues which the researcher needs to bear in mind. In addition, because of the current emphasis placed on research publications it is increasingly important for a researcher to obtain one or more published papers from the work conducted for a research degree. Having papers published is no mean feat and to succeed in this endeavour it is necessary to understand what is required as well as the nuances of journal paper publishing. This webinar will provide attendees with several important insights concerning how to become a published researcher.
