I just wanted to share my good news: the article I was working on during the course has just been accepted for publication. 

It was great to practice and have feedback on your previously written pieces - it was very motivating!

This one-day course

combines two important complementary skills, which are essential to academics and researchers - writing and publishing skills.

As science is becoming truly international, researchers are faced with the challenge of publishing in established international journals. Developing a strong publication and citation track-record are major challenges for all scientists.

This course will develop your writing and ability to publish in international journals, and is tailored to your needs, incorporating research topics relevant to your interests.


The course is taught by internationally renowned academics, with extensive experience of publishing, reviewing and editing for top journals and presenting to diverse audiences.

Of thousands of degree-granting universities, Goldsmiths Psychology department is in the World top 100 in the QS ranking for academic reputation. Papers by our academics are highly cited: we hold the 55 place among the Worlds' Psychology departments for the number of citations published per paper.

The director of the course, Professor Yulia Kovas, also runs a similar one-day course of Academic Writing at the British Psychological Society.
