This workshop examines how you can write with impact about your research and how you can help others (your students and research assistants) to do so. It takes a publishing-insider’s perspective and examines how you can improve your research writing to improve the chances that your article, book chapter or research report will be read and cited by as wide and significant an audience as possible. The course draws on Patrick Brindle’s 11 years’ of experience as a Research Methods publisher.
Participants will be asked to bring a short example of their writing to work on, and will be given advice on how to prepare mss to maximise the chances of getting published and improving the online discoverability of the work after publication. The workshop will examine the different narrative devices that can be deployed to write powerfully about research and methodology.

The course will be tailored as a train-the-trainers event and will be suitable for faculty members and researchers involved in providing training and supervision to students and junior researchers/faculty who need to write about and publish from their research in research journals, books and social media. The course is applicable for all subject areas across the social sciences.
Participants ideally should bring their own laptop and a short example of their own research writing in Word.
