OIKOS - How to Write a Peer Reviewed Article - Session 1

When:Fr 15-03-2024 14:00 - 17:00
Where:Amsterdam, t.b.a.

The course is addressed to ReMA students and PhD candidates. It is organized by OIKOS in collaboration with two peer-journals: the Dutch journal Lampas (executive editor: van Gils) and the international journal Mnemosyne (former executive editor: Pieper). It will deal with what peer reviewing means both for authors and boards of journals; how to deal with the peer reviewing process and the criticism/assessments; how to make choices between different journals; how to write peer reviews. Additionally, it will help participants in making a first step towards writing an article that they might want to publish in a journal.

Language of instruction will be English; but as we will also speak about Lampas, one of the articles you will prepare for the first session might be written in Dutch. In the second session, the language depends on the choices of the participants (if someone decides to write for Lampas, that will be in Dutch, of course).

First session:

  • General information about peer reviewing: why, what; do’s and don’ts 

  • Different kind of journals: how to choose?

  • Peer review (content)/communication with the journal: how to formulate, how to deal with criticism?

Preparation (ca. 10 hours):

  • Reading of two articles (one accepted, one rejected): what is good, what less good about the two articles?

  • Think of 5 journals that are good possible journals to publish your specific research in
