EASP – European Association of Social Psychology

EASP Workshop on Scientific Writing and Publishing

05.08.2023, by Media Account

Dates: November 8th & December 1st, 2023
Deadline: October 15th
Teachers: Roger Giner-Sorolla (University of Kent, UK) & Sabina Cehajic-Clancy (Stockholm University, Sweden).
Location: online (European time zone)

Training in scientific writing in English has been identified by the EASP as an obstacle to achieving greater regional diversity, which impedes our discipline’s knowledge development. Therefore, priority will be given to PhD students and postdocs from regions underrepresented in academic social psychology (within or outside Europe), who do not have access to an academic writing workshop in a PhD program, or who struggle with scientific English writing (self-identified).

The workshop will aim at giving participants advice on how to publish in social psychology journals. More specifically, participants will learn how to write a scientific article by focusing on the different sections of a paper, and how to write a convincing argument about one's evidence while remaining honest and transparent. Participants will get practical advice and feedback, and will be encouraged to write some sections of a manuscript reporting their own research according to the lessons of the workshop. In addition, the workshop will discuss the publication system in general (how it works), 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.
