12 Weeks to Publication
To support you in your academic writing and journal submissions we are offering all staff and Research Graduate candidates the 12 weeks to Publication academic writing program in 2022. The program is based on the highly successful workbook by Wendy Belcher: Writing Your Journal Article In 12 Weeks.
Share your research story on 2MCE community radio
The Researcher Development team are very excited to be working with the team at our Charles Sturt University community radio station 2MCE to produce a monthly program featuring the research stories of our graduate research candidates.
Each month two researchers will be able to share their research and a little about their research story. Interviews will be recorded in advance via zoom so location and time zones are not an issue.
If this is something you would like to participate in please submit an Expression of Interest form and our team will be in touch to book an interview.
