This seminar is intended for doctoral students and other researchers who are on the verge of or recently started writing qualitative research papers for publication in academic journals. Hence, researchers who have published academic papers successfully might find (parts of) this seminar less relevant. Through lecturing, practical exercises in small groups and group discussions, students will be stimulated to critically reflect on and develop a deeper understanding of the process of writing qualitative research papers for publication in academic journals. The seminar focuses first on the context and process of publishing in a general sense, focusing on issues like the importance of publishing, authorship, planning of the publishing process, selecting topics and journals and the type of feedback you can receive from reviewers and how you could respond to this. In a second part, the seminar focuses on the structure and content of qualitative research manuscripts, with a particular focus on the qualitative-data analysis part of an article (which involves issues like the use of citations, use of quantifications in analysis, developing a structure, unpacking of relationships and developing rich descriptions). The lecturer will use examples of qualitative research papers in progress to critically discuss the process of writing qualitative research for publication purposes. The lecturer will send reading material to all registered participants a week before the start of the seminar. Participants are expected to read this material before the start of the seminar.
