Writing for Publication Programme - Starter

The writing for publication programme is offered in collaboration with the Graduate School of Social Sciences (G3S). It consists of three modules that build on each other: Starter, Writers and Submitters.

  1. Starters prepares participants to commence writing an article
  2. Writers guides and support them in the writing process
  3. Submitters assists them in polishing a manuscript for admission.

It is possible to register for one or more modules at a time. However, it is only possible to actually participate in the Writers or Submitters modules after you have first completed the preceding module(s).


In this kick-off module, participants familiarize themselves with the language of writing for publication in the Social Sciences and Humanities so that they can autonomously start drafting a manuscript or revise an existing draft. The module has two parts:

  • In the self-study part, participants acquaint themselves with a ten-unit manual they receive from the lecturer.
  • In the face-to-face workshop, the lecturer addresses questions that participants have arising from the manual and otherwise. In addition, the lecturer and participants set up the writing process for the Writers module.

Target Group
