Writing for Publication
Sharing with the world of professional practice and scholarly knowledge in social work is an important component of building and solidifying the community of social workers across service providers.
One critical vehicle for sharing knowledge is through publication in professional and scholarly journals. However, most social work education programs provide minimal, if any, training in scholarly writing. This workshop is designed to help those who begin their publication journey to do so in the most efficient way.
The training will consist of two steps. First, “ground rules” and efficient strategies for scholarly publication will be discussed such as how to conceptualize a topic, types of publications, how to create a focus, and how to choose an appropriate venue. The second step will focus on applying the aforementioned rules and provide an opportunity for brainstorming and peer discussion regarding participants’ ideas for their individual publications.
