Some techniques that authors can use for developing effective arguments and communicating clear contributions to their audiences (editors, reviewers, academic readers and practitioners) are discussed in the workshop.
Dr. Stelvia Matos will start by discussing some key insights on high quality papers, which will include for example, format and writing style consistency, different case study approaches and contributions to theory and practice. She will then discuss about lessons that can be learned by reviewing papers and how it can improve our own writing process. She will conclude with a small group activity that will help the audience to explore key aspects of a high quality paper structure.
