Strategies for Improving Writing Clarity

Date / Time

Venue

This is a virtual event, accessible online. Access instructions will be provided after registration.

Description

People tend to be drawn to and understand information best when it is communicated to them in the form of a narrative or “story” rather than a list of facts. However, researchers rarely receive formal training on leveraging narrative tools when writing about their academic work. In this workshop, we describe evidence-based strategies for applying narrative structure to academic work, with a focus on preparing a manuscript for submission to a peer-reviewed academic journal.

Learning Objective

Describe strategies for using narrative tools to improve the clarity of your academic writing.

Responding to Peer Review Commentary

Date / Time

Venue

This is a virtual event, accessible online. Access instructions will be provided after registration.

Description

You have successfully mastered use of “story” when writing a manuscript, now how do you get it published? Publishing articles involves submitting scholarly manuscripts to peer-reviewed journals. A key component of publishing manuscripts involves receiving commentary about your work from peers in your field, and satisfactorily responding to such commentary. Yet, researchers rarely receive formal training on responding to peer review commentary. In this workshop, we describe evidence-based strategies for responding to peer review commentary, including strategies for how to compose cover letters for responding to such commentary.

Learning Objective

Identify evidence-based strategies for responding to commentary from peer-reviewed evaluations of your academic work.

Strategies for Developing a Research Program

Date / Time

Venue

This is a virtual event, accessible online. Access instructions will be provided after registration.

Description

Our first two writing workshops dealt with applying narrative tools to academic work and responding to peer review commentary, with the key goal of publishing a single journal article. How might you use these tools to connect separate articles together into a larger story? In research, our larger stories are the “research programs” we build from years of work and multiple articles. These are the stories we take with us “on the road” when interviewing for jobs and applying for grants. In this workshop, we discover how narrative devices commonly used in filmmaking actually help us weave related but distinct articles together into the “story” of an entire body of work.   

Learning Objective

Describe strategies for using narrative tools to develop and describe your research program
