Description

This course is designed to introduce graduate students to the research and publication process. Most graduate students have one or more research interests and many indicate a desire to present research either at national conferences or in scholarly/professional journals. However, few graduate students are ever formally mentored in the publication process.This seminar will be an intensive writing and research experience, through which students will read about research and publication, critique and evaluate work done by their peers in the course, and receive rich feedback on their writing and research topics from the professor. Students should bring a draft of an article, thesis, manuscript, or essay to rework as their final course project; alternatively, students can choose to work on portions of their doctoral dissertations to fulfill this requirement, or begin a new manuscript at my discretion.
