Block II





BLOCK I focuses on developing the skills necessary to prepare an article for an international, peer- reviewed journal. We will explore the common features of academic writing across disciplines as well as the shared expectations for communicating empirical research findings, with a specific focus on the commonalities across social science disciplines and academic languages. The seminar will use a range of interactive exercises to expand on competences in structuring an academic article, applying a reader-orientation in writing. In fulfillment of the course requirements, participants will be expected  to compose the foundation of an academic article.
BLOCK II focuses on participating in academic peer-review cultures and on revising and restructuring in the post-writing phase.


It is possible to participate only in Block I or in both Block I and II.

While the course language is English, the course will apply a writing-across-languages approach, with a particular focus on how the strategies discussed in class can be applied to other languages and genres.
