Writing tips for early career researchers

Writing effectively

We have a whole series of useful guides to help you write effectively across a whole series of academic formats. Just to highlight a few:

  • How to write…more simply
    This guide provides suggestions on how you can make sure your style is as clear as possible.

  • How to proof read your work
    In many ways this is a bit like copy-editing – so, paying close attention to the detail of the script; and reading at sentence level to make sure there is nothing that can detract from accuracy and clarity.

  • How to write an abstract
    How to make the most of your key opportunity to gain readership and citation.

There are many more helpful guides. View them all here.

Getting published and promoting your work

In addition, we have a raft of support for how to get published and how to disseminate your work. These guides will be of use when you take the next step with publishing and promoting your writing.

For instance:

We recommend that all of our authors register with Kudos to disseminate and promote their work – find out why, and how in our Kudos guide.
