Writing in English: Effective Strategies for Publishing Your Research

Writing in English: Effective Strategies for Publishing Your Research

Frank Lauterbach

Successful researchers need not only compelling ideas and data but also skills to communicate their research most effectively through writing in English. Yet, many academics are unsure about how the writing and publication process can be managed most productively, how they can best express themselves, and what criteria a well-written English paper needs to fulfill.

In this workshop, we will address such fundamental questions. We will, on the one hand, discuss ways to effectively plan your writing and to successfully prepare your papers for publication. On the other hand, we are going to analyze important strategies for developing powerful English sentences, paragraphs, and texts that meet the expectations of readers, reviewers, and editors alike.

In particular, we will cover the following topics:

  • understanding the nature of professional academic writing in English;
  • getting started with writing your text;
  • defining the focus and purpose of a research paper;
  • developing adequate outlines for paper introductions;
  • recognizing the overall organization and coherence of research papers;
  • structuring the individual sections of a paper;
  • drafting well-focused paragraphs;
  • applying the stylistic conventions of academic writing;
  • writing clear and concise sentences in English;
  • connecting sentences and linking ideas to make a text flow well;
  • overcoming potential obstacles or anxieties during various phases of writing;
  • mastering the submission, review, and publication process.

Please note that the workshop will be taught entirely in English. Thus, to participate and get the most out of it, you should be able to communicate quite fluently in English.
