Publish A Paper
Publish A Paper
Ever wanted to become a published academic as a way to improve your career, or simply to demonstrate your expertise in a specialised area?
Students work through this online course by formalising their initial concept and idea, receive guidance and tips on how to review the relevant literature, shown how to collect data and compose effective questionnaires, and finally how to analyse and present their results.
Students complete the course with an 3,000 - 5,000 word academic paper that is ready for publication.
During this course you will learn:
the structure needed to produce a paper
the type of content required by academic journals
how to find the content for your paper
the appropriate research methodology
the different referencing systems required
Students are encouraged to produce work systematically, and feedback and guidance is given on all drafts in terms of the structure and content that has been written. Students will produce a paper that is approximately 3,000 - 5,000 words in length by the end of the course.
The paper is then proofread and copy edited to publication level by us so that it is ready to be submitted to an academic journal.
Additional Services / Charges
We are happy to submit your paper to an academic journal on your behalf for an additional fee of £40. This fee includes researching appropriate journals for your paper, and any additional submissions required should your paper initially not be accepted.
There are 4 stages in the process - submitting a paper, acceptance by the journal, peer review by other academics, and then publication. Depending on the journal, the process can take 10-12 weeks from submission to publication. Once the journal is ready to publish your paper, there will be a journal publication fee of approximately £100 depending on the journal.
As part of the pilot programme for this course, we had 4 students successfully published in academic journals, with topics ranging from psychology to civil engineering. One of our students had two papers published and has now been promoted to Department Head at a new college.
