Peer-Review Publishing in Conservation

The Department of Conservation, University of Gothenburg, Sweden in
cooperation with Tress and Tress GbR, Munich, Germany announces a
PhD course in Peer-Review Publishing in Conservation, 2 hp/ECTS.

Traditionally, the PhD thesis in Conservation has been presented in
the format of a monograph. As with other disciplines, the
article-based PhD thesis format is becoming more common, and now is
an option in the discipline of conservation. The article-based model
consists of a number of separate, free-standing, but related,
published/publishable papers in peer-reviewed journals. The
Peer-Review Publishing in Conservation course prepares and guides
the PhD student in all aspects of the peer-review publishing process
in preparation for presenting their PhD research in the
article-based format. This course provides a hands-on approach to
writing a paper for an international peer-review journal, and
introduces the student to all the relevant steps involved in
successful paper preparation, writing, and editing. It helps the
student understand the explicit and implicit rules of the
peer-review and revision process and to learn how to deal with
reviewers and editors. Numerous training tasks help the participant
draft individual sections of her/his manuscript, and they are given
concrete advice on how to overcome the various hurdles involved in
the writing and publishing process. The course increases the
student's understanding of what is expected in each manuscript
section, and how to write these sections efficiently. It provides
answers to individual questions and gives clear instructions on how
to complete and submit one's manuscript.


Location and dates: The course will be based on the premises of the
Department of Conservation, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg,

Course period: 3 days, 18-20 September 2012

The 2 ECTS credits course will be conducted in English, with the

conservation primarily in the Nordic countries, but also in Europe.

Gothenburg must secure their own financing for travel and expenses.
The course is open to PhD students within cultural heritage
conservation. In the case of more than 12 applicants, the applicants
will be ranked primarily on a first-come, first served basis, and
the relevance of the applicants' PhD project to the discipline. PhD
