How to Craft a Journal Article? Workshop for Young Researchers and Post Graduate Students in Management Studies in Africa
DATE: 5th, 12th and 19th of NOVEMBER, 2021 VENUE:
HYBRID Rationale and Objectives Recently in many countries in Africa, it has become mandatory for any professionals within the academic sphere to publish articles in refereed journals to gain promotion. Similarly, many postgraduate students including master and PhD candidates are required to publish a journal article before they graduate. We understand the importance of publication but it is our considered observation that this would not be easy to many postgraduate students. Furthermore, this would contribute to the reduction of the number of postgraduate students who graduate on time as well in the future. On the same note, there are limited chances for African researchers to publish in good refereed journals globally; among the constraints, include language barriers and inadequate academic writing skills. In general, these decrease chances of sharing and disseminating knowledge generated in the Global South. To address this challenge we are proposing to conduct a workshop on academic writing skills for new academic staff and postgraduate students. Our expectation is that after training, the trainees would be empowered to develop publishable book chapters and journal articles.
