International Early-career & Experienced Researchers British Academy 2022 Writing Workshops

 The Writing Workshops are designed to empower early-career researchers in developing nations by fostering professional networks, creating research partnerships, encouraging the development of skills, offering guidance on career development, and promoting the adoption of research from these nations.

The British Academy hopes to encourage and assist early career researchers in developing nations who wish to publish in high impact journals in the humanities and social sciences, as well as give them the opportunity to network with academics and journal editors based both domestically and abroad, through the Writing Workshops program. The writing workshops are essentially career interventions that try to modify long-standing academic culture and interact with the larger research environment.

These workshops must be held in nations that qualify for ODA.
