The focus of this seminar is on both the writing and the publishing process in the English-language world. Participants study the required elements of journal article introductions and conclusions; the requirements of proper paragraphing in English; the position of the claim statement; the craft of writing a title; and the elements of an abstract. Participants also practice revising sentences to avoid common errors in academic writing (i.e., too much nominalization, inflated language use; lack of parallel structure, etc.). Finally, participants learn how to analyze journals to find the right fit for their work and how to communicate with editors.
