About the workshop

Workshop on Publishing for Young Researchers

19 May 2017, Premises of the Lublin conference center (Lubelskie Centrum Konferencyjne), Lublin, Poland


Message-driven Writing: A Technique for Bringing Order to the Creative Process
Matija Vodopivec & Valerij Dermol

The workshop will discuss the message-driven writing technique - a technique where the main message dictates the structure of the text and its content. This technique is in fact commonly used by experienced researchers, and it will be presented in an accessible, clear and useful manner. Because writing is a creative process, it is always demanding and often frustrating -- but with the help of this workshop, we will show how it can be made less stressful and more productive.
The PhD workshop will also cover the following topics:

  • Planning the content: how to formulate the main message, constructing thematic and extended outlines, and the content of individual sections
  • Drafting and editing: writing the first draft, revising, editing, and tips on writing paragraphs.
  • Publishing: what editors seek, selecting journals, and the process of revising.


The workshop provides an opportunity to discuss your own research paper during the workshop and to receive comments and feedback from Matija Vodopivec and Valerij Dermol. Regarding this every participant of the workshop is invited to apply with the paper (optional - please click here for more information on how to submit the workshop paper). For the purpose of the workshop it can be a paper you have already published, although we advise to use the papers that are in the process of creation. Participants of MakeLearn & TIIM 2017 can apply with a paper submitted for the conference.
