PhD Workshop - Excel your academic writing skills

The PhD workshop is directed for all PhD candidates no matter what part of the journey they are on, but we also welcome early-stage researchers. The objectives of the workshop is to gain a reviewer's perspective of your work, information of what editors expect from your article submission and develop your network. The first part of the workshop will involve active participation from all participants. For this, participants will be expected to send a working article two weeks before the workshop. This can be an early draft or near completed draft article and preferably not the article that you may be presenting at the main conference. Participants will peer-review each other’s work as they will be allocated another participant's draft article for constructive feedback. The second part of the workshop will be more tips on how to get published and what journal editors expect from initial submission to final submission. We aim for the workshop to be enjoyable with engaging discussions about research. For more information, please contact Professor Carmel Lindkvist (
