Quality Papers: increase confidence when writing

Course Overview

You enjoy research, but writing papers is either scary or just takes too long.  Pressing commitments mean, however, that you haven't got patches of undisturbed hours in your diary.  If you are a scientist you work with co-authors who need co-ordinating.  If in arts and humanities, you tend to be more isolated.  Quality Papers provides a process that can help you write with greater speed and confidence, at the same time as increasing your chance of getting published in your target journal. The course gives strategies for getting the best from your co-authors and streamlining thinking, writing and editing.
