European Sociological Association Summer School 2010 ESA
Academic Journal Writing Workshop for PhD students
Finland, 19-23 July 2010

Publishing journal articles in peer reviewed journals in English has
been an increasing trend in the academia, and is nowadays a requirement
for anyone wishing to have a serious career in Sociology. The skill of
article writing is however not always a part of the PhD training,
furthermore, there are diverse myths on what makes a good manuscript,
and how to internationalize one's research in a meaningful way. This ESA
Summer School wishes to provide a platform for both learning about this
specific form of writing, and a creative and supportive environment to
finalize a manuscript during the course.

The Summer School is aimed to work as an aid for PhD students struggling
with an article manuscript in progress. You are welcome to apply if you
currently work with a manuscript. The text can be a manuscript in the
finalizing stage before initial submission, or after a review process,
working with the final editing.

The requirement is that you have a full text in English to work on, a
draft that can be circulated among participants by June 28th 2010.

The Summer School is co-organized by the Sociology Departments of
University of Turku and University of Helsinki, and the ESA. The Summer
School takes place in a beautiful setting in the archipelago of Finland,
the Archipelago Research Institute of University of Turku in Seili,
Nauvo. The venue provides a peaceful historic environment for writing
and discussions, with sea, nature, and the midnight sun.

ESA covers all costs for the course, the accommodation and all meals.
Students will need
to cover their own travel to Turku. There are low budget flights to
Turku (SAS, AirBaltic,
WizzAir) and Helsinki (all major companies, 2 hours by train or bus from
Turku), and a
ferry connection from Stockholm. Students must bring their own
