Yokohama JALT:

Negotiating the discipline: Writing for publication in TEFL/TESL

Date: Saturday, November 16th, 2013 Time: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Theron Muller (University of Toyama)

This two part interactive workshop will first discuss the practices of teacher-researchers writing for academic publication, considering obstacles encountered and strategies for successfully overcoming those obstacles. The second part will examine examples of the process of negotiating publication, discussing samples of writing submitted for review alongside the comments of editors and reviewers. Discussion will center around how manuscripts require transformation through dialog with academic reviewers and editors. Participants interested in preparing their own manuscripts for publication will learn more about the process they should expect their papers to undergo and how to go about selecting potential publications for their work.
