Pop your Paper! 

This is designed for academic writers, aspiring and experienced, who want to gain some insight into how to better "pitch" their paper. Through the module we will take an interactive approach and examine the best way to introduce, structure and motivate your aper. 

About the module

This is a one day self contained course that  provides an overview of the following issues.

  • Rejection, Revision and Reflection on papers
  • Killer tips for impactful titles and abstracts 
  • What editors look for in tables, figures and graphs and what causes them to reject papers
  • Open access, open data and how to make your paper fit into this new paradigm


The module is designed to be interactive and to facilitate group learning as much as possible. We are all researchers and all face the same issues, and thus can learn one from another. The module is designed to share a toolkit, a set of questions and processes, to pool experience towards getting published.  To that end it would be beneficial for participants to bring along a laptop, work in progress or which has been recently rejected, and to a willingness to share experiences. 


All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
