Writing for Publications Lecture
For the past couple of years I have been doing occassional lectures as part of WIT’s Generic Skills programme for research postgraduates. The programme is delivered by academics from across WIT’s schools and is targetted to help MSc by Research and PhD students develop a range of generic skills that are essential to their development as researchers. Yesterday I delivered a lecture on “Academic Writing: Writing for Publications”; slides can be down load from here. In the lecture I tried to provide the perspective of a conference / journal peer reviewer, in particular highlighting common deficiencies in the structuring and presentation of research papers that are relatively easy to avoid.
