Activity: Attending an event › Organisation or participation in workshops, courses or seminars
This full-day workshop is designed to explore the question: What aspects of writing help to give a journal manuscript star quality? The session starts by considering the widely acknowledged mechanisms for producing quality writing, such as coherence, clarity and conciseness. It then moves on to explore less obvious mechanisms that are used to communicate consistency, authority and persuasiveness. This is done by analysing the language used in articles from various high-impact journals. The session ends with suggestions for strategies to help students to develop their ability to write clear, coherent and concise papers that are also consistent, authoritative and persuasive.
