Join the MME division for a pre-conference workshop designed help you improve your scholarly writing.

Tuesday, August 5 – 1.30 PM to 5 PM

This session will explore issues related to successfully publishing journal articles and books including how to: formulate a strong and interesting research project. write and edit a manuscript, select a journal or book publisher to submit a manuscript to, submit an article or book for consideration, revise work based on reviewers comments, and work with editors during the revision process.

Participants will be asked to submit a manuscript for review. This manuscript will be reviewed by an appropriate reviewer, who will serve as the participant’s writing coach. Each participant will meet one-on-one for a 30-minute session with his/her personal writing coach. The coach will share his/her review of the participant’s manuscript, analyze the manuscript in light of the discussion in the morning session, answer questions, and make suggestions.

While the one-on-one coaching sessions are being conducted, participants not in those individual sessions will be in a group coaching on making academic presentations. Each participant will make a 10-minute research presentation, which will be constructively critiqued by fellow workshop participants and coaches. Presentations will be taped and a copy of the tape given to the participant.

These sessions should help prepare graduate students and junior faculty for greater success with academic conferences, publications and job talks.
