CETL seminar by Professor Simon Haslett, Director of the Centre of Excellence in Learning and Teaching, University of Wales, Newport
Publications are an important aspect of the work of an academic; remaining the principal vehicle through which research is reported, opinions aired, reviews undertaken, and knowledge transferred, and writing is also a useful learning exercise. For many, it also underpins teaching and curricula, means greater success in research grant applications, and a good publication track record is still seen by many institutions as a key recruitment and promotion criteria. Yet traditionally how to get your work published has not been taught, but learnt through trial and error, mainly from rejection by journal editors. This interactive workshop explores and discusses the issues surrounding the writing process, strategy and publication of academic work, and addresses some of the myths and barriers that might discourage would-be authors.
