Course Information

This blended course has pre-course activities to complete in your own time and course activities to engage with during the live course: you will receive the credit by participating in all pre-course and course activities.

Pre-course activities (duration about 1h30) will prepare you for the live session. Live sessions are available on different dates as online interaction (2.5hrs) or as a face-to-face workshop (3hrs).

The live course (1h30) will support you in clarifying the learning and working in small groups to receive/give peer-feedback on the tasks you completed.

Learning Outcomes

  • Assess where best to publish your work.
  • Develop your strategy for producing a publication, from the organisation of the writing to the generation of the final publication and reply to the reviewer comments.
  • Evaluate what to publish (e.g. what information needs to be shown to establish the validity of your research).
  • Employ techniques to display and interpret data effectively.
  • Judge the quality of your publication and recognise the benefits of reviewer feedback.
