Writing Your Research for Publication in the Social Sciences
This training event has been organised by the Education, Childhood and Youth (ECY) Pathway, however students and doctoral researchers from all Pathways are welcome.
This half-day seminar is designed to help students in the social sciences think about translating their research into an academic publication.
Students should gain:
- Insights into peer-reviewed and graduate student publishing
- An understanding of the peer-review process of scholarly journals for publishing your research papers
- Insights into selecting a suitable journal
- Consideration of presenting own research to a wider academic audience through publication
- Insight into participating in the running and organisation of student-led journals including the challenges, successes and sustainability issues.

Summary of research project:
The status of teachers’ assessments in high stakes qualifications and tests does not attract the same levels of confidence as externally set and marked components. The increased use of assessments as accountability measures in the compulsory phase of education in England has resulted in a level of mistrust in some quarters over the reliability of teacher-based assessments. This has also been linked to concerns about the lack of expertise in assessment theory and practice within the teaching profession. This study aims to gain a deeper understanding of issues around trust in teacher assessment and the development of a strategy to provide more public and professional confidence in teacher assessment outcomes.
Louise's research interests focus on early years education, literacy and research methods. She conducts large scale evaluations of programmes in schools, primarily using randomised controlled trials (RCTs). Recent projects have included an evaluation of the SPOKEs programme designed for the parents of struggling readers in Year 1, Home or care? A comparison of educational experiences and outcomes for maltreated children and an evaluation of the Success for All programme.
