FASS521d Writing for Publication (Second/Third/Final Year Students only) (distance learning)


Module description

The FASS521d site provides a virtual version of Professor Lynne Pearce's two-day intensive course, FASS521: Writing for Publication (Second/Third/Final Year Students only) - see separate entry. The course offers information and advice on the world of academic publishing, and will be of particular interest to those who wish to continue in academia after graduating. The first sessions will focus on how to get your work published in academic journals, while others will offer insights into academic book publishing (with a particular focus on what you would need to turn your PhD into a book). A large number of resources (eg examples of journal abstracts and successful book proposals) will be made available through the site.

This module has been set up as an interactive online resource that will run for four weeks during the Michaelmas Term (6-9 inclusive). Participants will be invited to share their responses to the various exercises with one another and Professor Pearce ( will be on hand to answer queries and participate in the discussions.
