Class description

A Workshop on Writing for Academic Publication

"Writing for Academic Publication" is a workshop for graduate students who have a previously-written paper they would like to make into a publishable article. You'll be lengthening (if necessary) and revising your own essay, reading and commenting on each others' work, learning how to write comments in the form of reader's reports for journals, and researching journals appropriate for work written in your field of study. The workshop is open to any graduate student with a paper of sufficient length to become an article-length essay (usually somewhere from 22 to about 30 pages) during the course of the quarter.
