This session will talk through a realistic approach to getting research papers published, and will touch on topics such as: identifying appropriate publication targets; characterising the evidence; key ingredients; setting appropriate expectations; and dealing with reviewers - the actual topics will be tailored to the participants on the day.
Marian Petre’s research follows two main strands – expert software design (how experts reason and communicate about design and problem solving, and how they use representations in their reasoning) and computer science education (how expertise develops). Marian is Director of the Centre for Research in Computing, acting Postgraduate Research Tutor in Computing and supervisor of a number of PhD research students. She was part of the team that developed the Research Degrees Skills website. The second edition of her book with Gordon Rugg on ‘The Unwritten Rules of PhD Research’ has just been published.
