Research Planning and Writing Retreat Day – March 2018

This one-day event is open to anyone interested in: contributing to planning and drafting a research bid; presenting ideas on authored or edited books; preparing for a special issue of a journal or setting aside time to draft a specific output.

Anyone with an interest in setting aside time to join colleagues who have interests in criminal victimisation, experiences of harm and justice, victim-advocacy, safeguarding and support is welcome. We plan to engage in a range of scholarly activities, discuss, plan, innovate and set up work streams and project plans. There are limited spaces and funding towards the cost of travel to attend so we are seeking a strong commitment to attend on the day.

Additionally, we will also be running a parallel early-career postgraduate and PhD writing day with mentoring support provided by more senior members attending the research planning event.

The event will take place on Monday  March 26, 2018 at Sheffield Hallam University.

Anyone interested in attending the Research Planning Day will need to submit a brief 150 words outline of what their personal contribution to the day is likely to involve, detailing their areas of expertise. For example, it might include one or more of the following:

  • Draft an authored, co-authored/edited book proposal
  • Share ideas for a special issue of a specific journal and securing contributors
  • Drafting the content of a book chapter
  • Develop an individual/joint/collaborative research proposal
  • Target a specific funded research opportunity

For PhD and early-career researchers we require a brief 150 word outline of what you intend to write and for what audience, including information on the subject area so we can match you with a suitable mentor.

A contribution of up to £50 is available towards the costs of your travel to the event (via re-imbursement on production of your travel receipt on the day). There will be refreshments (cake) and a light lunch.
