For many young scientists writing is the most difficult part of research work. Poor structure, breakneck formulations and unclear argumentation lead to texts which are not too user friendly. However, For the success of academics it is essential that the content is successfully conveyed to the relevant target groups.
In this workshop the process of academic writing is highlighted from the first idea through the structuring and formation of the text to its completion. The participants engage with the content related, formal and organisational aspects of writing. The following topics are covered.
- Abstract, article, thesis: Text types and reasons for writing in academia
- From idea to text:
Topic selection, structure, argumentation
- Writing as a process:
Utilising creative bursts – avoiding blocks
- Academic writing: My next steps
