EASP Workshop on Scientific Writing and Publishing (Online)
17.06.2021, by Tina Keil in announcement
September 24th and October 1st, 2021
Registration deadline: August 10th, 2021
The EASP’s diversity task force has identified training in scientific writing in English as an obstacle to achieving greater regional diversity—which impedes our discipline’s knowledge development. As a first step toward addressing this issue, we are happy to offer early career researchers—especially if coming from underrepresented regions, not having access to an academic writing workshop in a PhD program, or struggling with scientific English writing (self-identified)—an opportunity to participate in workshop on scientific writing and publishing. Delivered by our members Marco Brambilla (University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy) and Kai Epstude (University of Groningen, The Netherlands; whom we deeply thank for their willingness to contribute to this initiative!), the workshop will aim at giving PhD students and postdocs, advice on how to publish in social psychology journals.
The central goal of the workshop is show how to write a scientific article by focusing on the different sections of a paper and to give some practical advice and feedback. Students will be asked to write some sections of a manuscript in light of the contents of the workshop. We will also discuss how the publication system works in general, and how to choose a journal for a specific paper. The workshop also provides the opportunity to address participants’ specific questions about any of these topics. The workshop is designed for PhD students who are in the second half of their doctoral programme or postdocs in early stages of their postdoctoral training. Because the number of places in the workshop is limited, priority will be given to candidates who do not have access for similar workshops in their PhD programs.
