Academic Writing and Publishing in Innovation and Entrepreneurship Research

7,5 credits

The aim of the course is to provide the doctoral student with in-depth knowledge of academic writing and publication in peer-reviewed international scientific journals in innovation and entrepreneurship research.

The course consists of five full-day meetings with homework between the occasions. The meetings are scheduled April-June. The teaching takes place in the form of interactive lectures and seminars that require active participation. A final script will be submitted at the end of August for review and assessment. All teaching is in English.

Each meeting is divided into a morning session and an afternoon session with different focus. The morning session aims to develop the doctoral student's academic writing ability to facilitate publication in international peer-review journals. During the process, the participants gradually write a paper based on feedback from the course leader and other participants. The aim is to work out a publishable manuscript that can be submitted for review.

The afternoon session focuses on key parts of the academic publishing process and the professional and ethical positions that researchers encounter when reviewing and assessing scientific work. The sessions contain themes such as ranking systems for journals, positioning and problematization, the editorial function, review via peer-review, and publishing ethics linked to, among other things, authorship and analysis of empirical data.

Full-day meetings for spring 2022 are planned as follows:

April 6, 9-16
April 20, 9-16
4 May, 9-16
25 May, 9-16
June 8, 9-16

The doctoral course is organized as part of the doctoral program in Innovation Science at Halmstad University. We welcome doctoral students with an interest in innovation and entrepreneurship research from other doctoral programs and universities.

The course has 14 places with 7 places reserved for doctoral students at Halmstad University. The seats are accessible via the "first come, first served" principle. Application is now closed.

The teaching is planned to be on campus. We are actively monitoring the global COVID-19 outbreak and its consequences, and if necessary, measures will be taken to implement the doctoral course in a virtual format.
