Writing is an essential part of the successful researcher’s skillset. However, writing at the standard necessary to publish in peer-reviewed journals can be challenging. This two-day writing workshop is for doctoral researchers in the humanities and social sciences who wish to improve their academic writing skills in English.
This practical workshop will focus on the structure of an English paper and abstract and how to improve the style and readability of an academic text. Participants are encouraged to bring along a sample of their current writing that will be the basis for peer review on the second day of the course. In addition, participants should bring at least two examples of research articles from their own field of research (written by native English speakers if possible).
Following the course, participants can send the instructor some text for individual feedback and correction.
The workshop is open to all users of the Hamburg Research Academy, participation is free of charge. Please register here.
