Publishing from the PhD: Selecting, scaffolding, writing, supervising & publication

Professor Gina Wisker

WHEN: Thursday 6 March, 2014, 3-4.30pm
(Afternoon tea will be provided at 3pm followed by the seminar at 3.30pm)
WHERE: TX5 Room G.04
RSVP: Email Margaret Drummond (RSVP by 4 March is essential for catering purposes)

Many of us either want to publish during our PhDs or are expected to do so, while others want to publish once the PhD is completed and still others produce PhDs by publication. This session will look at ‘managing the writing energy’ of writing for publication alongside the research and writing of the PhD itself; selecting appropriate elements of the PhD which suit publication; carrying out both the writing and the choosing and directing at certain publications; finessing and getting the work published, including responding to the feedback from reviewers. It will also consider the role the supervisor can play in such publication whether during or after the PhD.
