The Society are delighted to once again partner with AuthorAid to provide writing support to researchers based in low- and middle-income countries, with targeted additional support for researchers based in the Caribbean. AuthorAid’s award-winning online research writing courses have trained over 11,000 participants since 2015.
The upcoming free online course Research Writing in the Social Sciences is designed for those working in the social sciences and is suitable for early career researchers, or those with limited experience publishing papers in reputable peer-reviewed journals.
The course will run for seven weeks from 5 July and participants typically spend about five hours per week on the course. Participants can study in their own time whenever convenient, and the course is free to individual participants. Those who meet the completion criteria will receive a PDF certificate with a unique verification code to prove its authenticity.
Research from Caribbean scholars remains underrepresented in the Society’s journals, therefore we are providing sponsorship for the course to allow geographers based in the Caribbean to join a special cohort with additional support. This aligns with other Society activities including our partnership with CARICUK and the Rob Potter Award.
Those in this Society cohort will be able to access additional areas, learning resources and optional modules within the course.
Selection for the cohort will be in early July and we will let you know if you have been selected at that time.
To be eligible for this additional cohort you should be either based in the Caribbean, or based in another mid/low-income country and working on the Caribbean. However, even if you are not selected for this cohort, you will still be part of the open group in the AuthorAID course.
Please see below for enrolment instructions for both the course and the Society cohort
