FSS – How to Publish and Write Journal Articles

FSS - How to Publish and Write Journal Articles

This course is divided in two Modules, one on quantitative and one on qualitative research. Participants have to join one session to earn 0.5 EC’s. There is an option to join both modules and earn half a credit each, but participants should be aware, that there will be some overlap of the content of the two modules.

Course Description

Module I: How to write a quantitative journal article and get it published

(Taught by dr. Loes Aaldering)

This class focusses on who to write a good quantitative journal article that is publishable. We will discuss the following topics:

• Structure of a good quantitative paper

• Issues related to open-science and research ethics

• Issues related to the publication process

Module II:  How to write a qualitative journal article and get it published 

(Taught by prof. dr. Kathy Davis)

This class tackles the issue of how to get a journal article published – an endeavor which is often fraught with uncertainty, difficulties, and even outright suffering.  Drawing upon my experiences as editor, author and reviewer, I will address how to write a journal article, find a journal, survive the review cycle and manage the revision process. Participants will do a writing exercise aimed at making the articles they want to write just a little more interesting and, hopefully, a lot more publishable.  

To do before the workshop:

Write a few lines about an article you would like to write or are in the process of writing or have completed, but not yet published.  This will be the basis for the exercise which will be done in the class.
