BRS WORKSHOP | How to proofread your own works - Part 1

BRS Workshop
Instructor: Lorraine Mannion

This is a two-part workshop. Participants are advised to take part in both workshops, however, it is not a prerequisite. With your registration here you are registering only for Part 1
(the second part of this workshop takes place on 26.06.2018).

CONTENT

Experienced writers in academia whose native language is English may find it laborious to proofread their own work, particularly when a considerable amount of time has already been spent refining or improving the content of the paper. For non-native speakers of English, the challenge is even greater: unsure of what to look for when checking the final draft, they frequently overlook errors that negatively affect the overall quality of the paper. Hence this interactive workshop addresses the main points to be mindful of before submitting an article for peer review and provides practical ways to improve one's proofreading skills.

AIMS
After completing this workshop, participants will:

  • be aware of how proofreading differs from editing
  • be able to apply simple strategies for proofreading academic work
  • be able to more quickly and accurately spot and correct typos and writing errors
  • recognize the importance of step-by-step revision
  • know how to work systematically with checklists and concordances to minimize errors

TOPICS

  • checking for spelling, punctuation, and grammatical errors
  • using academic concordances
  • working with checklists
  • observing the journal's instructions for authors
  • optimising sentence/paragraph length

To prepare for the workshops, participants will be expected to carry out a preliminary review of their paper with the help of a checklist, which will be sent by the instructor three weeks before the workshop.

PARTICIPANTS | This workshop is exclusively for doctoral candidates of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Master Students may register but will be placed on the waiting list. Should there be any free slots or in case of a cancellation we will contact students on the waiting list on a first-come-first-serve basis.
