As publication pressures grow, gaining insights into the writing and review process is essential knowledge that can add value to your career. At this conference, you will learn about the craft of writing and publishing. You will engage with senior scholars and journal editors in public administration and policy and discuss aspects of the writing, review and publication process that are not normally taught in PhD programmes, or in other academic writing workshops. You will gain these insights by improving one of your manuscripts with a view to submitting it to a leading academic journal.
You will bring your own draft manuscript to the conference. The conference will focus on improving your manuscript by examining the “journal article lifecycle”: crafting interesting questions, framing compelling arguments, drafting manuscripts and drawing out implications, navigating the review process and the maximizing the impact your article after publication. Each trainer will serve as a mentor for a small group of participants, and work with them in groups or individually throughout the conference.
