Expectations of Participants:
Prior to attending session 1, participants will be expected to submit a draft introduction of their paper. This will ensure that participants do not come to the Publication Challenge cold but rather are fully engaged with their writing. Please submit this by Wednesday 25th January 2017 to laura.hegarty@strath.ac.uk.

It is expected that participants will, as a default, be working with a Departmental writing mentor so as to benefit from subject specific input especially regarding content. There are other forms of support available within their Department or at the institutional level which participants will be made aware of.
