Writing a journal paper: a hands-on workshop for heritage and landscape researchers

L.R.Egberts and J. Renes, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and A. Pereira Roders, Technical University Delft, the Netherlands


This workshop is aimed at PhD researches who have performed a part of their research and are looking for ways to publish on their ongoing research. It offers a very first introduction to paper-writing for academic journals and helps you get started on the process. You are expected to bring in a 200-word abstract of your paper idea and the name of a potential journal in mind. At the end you will have a peer-reviewed version of your abstract and an introduction ready. But most importantly: you know how to work towards getting your first paper published.

Learning goals:

After this course researchers:

• Have a clear understanding of the process of submission, review and publication of academic journals
