This valuable workshop will take place at the IALE 2023 World Congress, taking place in Nairobi, Kenya, on 10th July 2023.
Workshop Aims: A hands on capacity building workshop for graduate students and early career researchers to advise on how to write and submit articles to scientific journals, using Landscape Research Journal as a case study. The session will be based around sharing knowledge and understandings of written outputs from research, and will examine the key issues to overcome and provide opportunities to discuss the development of skills and strategies for improving your writing skills and output strategy.
Each participant should

- How to select the ‘right’ journal
- ‘What to do and what not to do’ while publishing your paper
