Cloud Deakin Recordings of BUiLD Research Seminars

Writing a Publishable Paper with Professor Leyland Pitt

In November 2018, the Faculty of Business and Law hosted a two-day BUiLD Workshop on how to write publishable papers with Professor Leyland Pitt. The workshop included five sessions on why and how to publish, how journals work, how to target your preferred journals, and how to craft a publishable paper.

Leyland Pitt is the Dennis F. Culver EMBA Alumni Chair of Business, Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada, and, Distinguished Fellow, Hanken, Swedish School of Economics, Helsinki, Finland. His writing workshops are highly regarded and PhD students who have attended his workshops have an enviable record in publishing.

Leyland graciously allowed us to record some of his Deakin sessions (for PhD student’s use only). A short summary of each session is below. You can access the recordings in the Resources tab of your HDR Research Cloud along with the handouts that were used in the workshops.

We have also uploaded to the Resources tab a recording of the very popular BUiLD workshop on Research Supervision that we held in May 2019 with Dr Tamsin Paige from the Deakin Law School, and Robert McLaughlin from UNSW. Tamsin and Robert discussed what worked for them in their student-supervisor relationship, what makes good supervision and what both students and supervisors can do to achieve this goal. Tamsin and Robert are in the Law discipline but the ideas and suggestions they discuss are relevant to all disciplines. Happy viewing!
