Publishing from your PhD

This online workshop has been organised by the Sustainable Growth, Management and Economic Productivity (SMP) Pathway and is open to all ESRC and non-ESRC funded PhD and MA Social Research students within the WRDTP’s seven partner universities. Whilst this workshop is aimed at SMP Pathway students, PGRs from all seven interdisciplinary Pathways are welcome to attend.

This workshop will encourage PhD researchers to reflect on their current and future publishing strategies and tactics in a highly challenging environment. The two-hour session will draw from the speaker’s own experience of developing articles from a PhD thesis for publication in top journals. The workshop will synthesize and share key learnings, including differences between thesis and article writing, aspects surrounding collaboration with other academics, and critical expectations from editors/reviewers in relation to data presentation and support. Participants will also be given the opportunity to explore article topics and formats that may be derived from their own thesis, whilst considering how these may fit with potential journal audiences. The workshop will conclude by highlighting the submission process and publishing timelines.

By the end of the session, students will be able to:

  1. Identify potential ideas for paper development from their doctoral thesis
  2. Explain the key differences between thesis and paper writing
  3. Describe the academic publication process
  4. Discuss core expectations of academic journal editors and reviewers

This training session will be delivered via Blackboard Collaborate.
