How to structure and edit your paper


Edinburgh Campus

This workshop is designed for researchers who are considering publishing their research and have some familiarity with the process and terminology. This workshop is part of a set of three interlinked workshops providing a comprehensive advice and knowledge on how to successfully publish your research findings. It is recommended that participants attend all three of these sessions.

This session will provide practical guidance on how to decide the overall shape of your paper and how to write specific components – notably the abstract, conclusion, tables and figures, and the cover letter. The session will also introduce editorial criteria to help you assess and develop your papers.
