Writing to Be Published for the Social Sciences and Humanities – Starters

The writing for publication programme is offered in collaboration with the Graduate School of Social Sciences (G3S). All modules are free of charge for G3S members. Participants from other PhD programmes and Faculties are also welcome, space permitting. Non-G3S participants must pay the course fees listed below.

The programme consists of three modules that build on each other:
1. Starters prepares participants to commence writing an article
2. Writers guides and support them in the writing process
3. Submitters assists them in polishing a manuscript for submission.

It is possible to register for one or more modules at a time. Participants can attend both the Starters and Writers modules in the same semester, or only one module per semester.

Participation in the Starters module is compulsory and must come first. It is only possible to participate in the Writers or Submitters modules after you have completed the preceding module(s).


STARTERS

In this kick-off module, participants familiarize themselves with the language of writing for publication in the Social Sciences and Humanities so that they can autonomously start drafting a manuscript or revise an existing draft. The lecturer introduces participants to a writing manual and some writing tools and addresses questions that participants have arising from the manual and otherwise. In addition, the lecturer and participants set up the writing process for the Writers module.


Target Group

Doctoral candidates and postdocs from G3S as well as other PhD programmes and Faculties, space permitting.
