Finish Your Journal Article (Faculty Community)

Tue, 22 Jan 2019 12:00 AM - Thu, 24 Jan 2019 11:50 AM

This program has been postponed until next fall or spring. Please consider submitting and application then.


Individual scholarly productivity will be fostered through participation in a writing accountability community that encourages and supports the cultivation and completion of a journal article over a 5-week period. This facilitated scholarship community offers faculty both an offline and online space to: develop a scholarly writer’s profile; plan a journal article; share and learn tips and strategies for successful publications; develop academic writing habits; dedicate time to writing and editing; and celebrate success. Over the 5-week period, participants will need to commit to being present for five, semi-structured, 3.5-hour meetings in person. Participants will also share their progress, tips, reflections, and hardships through an online accountability page to support each other. Whether working on a new manuscript or making revisions, this experience will help scholars move toward journal manuscript completion.
