A WORKSHOP ON

“HOW TO PUBLISH IN INTERNATIONAL JOURNALS:

For Scholars in Philosophy, Politics and Related Fields”

A COLLABORATION OF UNIVERSITY OF CALABAR, NIGERIA AND UNIVERSITY OF JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA

A PROGRAMME OF THE CONVERSATIONAL SCHOOL OF PHILOSOPHY IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE DIRECTORATE OF RESEARCH AND QUALITY ASSURANCE, UNIVERSITY OF CALABAR

 

Aims: The most difficult field to write and publish a standard research paper is philosophy. Philosophers are chronic critics and any work at all can be criticised by philosophers. To minimise the possibility of rejection requires certain research and writing skills and that is what this workshop aims to train participants on. The workshop also aims to acquaint post-doctoral fellows and lecturers with the ‘hidden norms’ of publishing in international journals (roughly those accredited by the ISI or IBSS databases or published by presses such as Sage, Springer and Taylor & Francis) as well as to rework participants’ abstracts and introductions so that they conform to these norms.

Topics will include: having an audience in mind before writing; choosing a journal; ignoring house style with profit; ignoring word limits with even more profit; formatting a paper so that you don't look like a new fish; constructing the suitably brief abstract; focusing on the five necessary and sufficient conditions for an introduction that is immune to criticism; phrasing that thesis statement so that it exhibits cognitive strength; indicating what's new about your work without sounding arrogant; making each section its own mini-essay; concluding in ways that forestall referee criticisms; protecting your identity from nosy editors and referees; dealing (emotionally and otherwise) with rejections; proceeding with acceptances; getting your work noticed.
