Workshop on Preparing Research for Publication

09 Jul 2018

Venue: Shiv Nadar University, Gautam Buddha Nagar, Greater Noida, UP
Time: 10:00 AM

China Report: A Journal of East Asian Studies, in association with Shiv Nadar University and Institute of Chinese Studies, invites applications to participate in this workshop from young researchers and academics interested in publishing their research related to China and its neighbourhood, including on India-China relations, India-China comparisons and aspects of India’s Asia policy. China Report is a peer-reviewed journal, now in its 54th year of publication, brought out by the Institute of Chinese Studies, Delhi, in association with Sage Publications.

The objective of the workshop is to hone the skills of researchers in preparing their work for publication. While researchers and academics are under constant pressure to publish their work in scholarly journals, not just for jobs and promotions but also to qualify for doctoral degrees, many find that they have not received the training necessary to produce work of publishable quality.

The workshop will focus on issues such as: the essentials of a good scholarly article; constructing an original argument; good research methodology, particularly in the context of writing about China and Asia; the style of writing suitable for scholarly work; reviewing the work of others; plagiarism; and proofreading, editing and revising an article.

The workshop will follow an interactive method. Participants will get an intensive, hands-on training in reading, critiquing, editing and revising their own work and that of others, which will be mentored by qualified faculty.

The two pre-requisites for applying for this workshop are:

1) that the applicant should be engaged in researching and writing on some topic related to China, East Asia or an aspect of India’s Asia policy that impinges on China

2) that the applicant be prepared to spend the entire 3 days of the duration of the workshop participating in its proceedings.

Interested applicants are required to submit a synopsis (800 to 1000 words) of an article that they would like to prepare for publication.

The synopses will be screened by the organizers and selected applicants will be required to submit a full draft of their articles (5000-6000 words) prior to the commencement of the workshop. They will also be required to read the preparatory material, which will be sent to them.
