Welcome to Understand How to Write Good Papers for High Level Journals


Description: Publication in good journals is a sign of high international recognition of your work. Writing good papers that can be accepted for publication on high level journals are one of the important tasks during a Ph. D. study. This course tries to help the Ph. D. students to increase their chances to get their papers published in international journals. To serve the goal, in this course

  • First, the procedure about how the paper review process is carried out will be explained (starting from the moment you submit your paper to the time that you get the reviewers’ comments and until the final decision).
  • How will a reviewer review a paper.
  • Standard evaluation forms that will be filled in by the reviewers for different journals.
  • Important aspects to consider when you write your paper. (Paper structure, what to do and what not to do)
  • How to include citations to other work in a paper
  • How to write the reply to the response from reviewer.
  • Case study.
  • Exercises and discussions.

Examples will be given mainly in the Energy Technology area in terms of journals – but most of it has a generic structure in terms of peer review process.

Important information concerning PhD courses We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
