More about the programme

Funded by the UK's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

The British Academy, as part of the UK's Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), is inviting proposals for writing workshops in developing countries. These workshops should aim to support early career academics, promote the uptake of research emanating from developing countries in international journals and further intellectual interaction globally.

The intention of the Writing Workshops is to cultivate professional networks and mentorship and provide access for early career researchers in developing countries to the academic requirements of journals, including international journals, and to equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to publish in these journals. This will support the progression of their academic careers and promote the visibility of their research in international publications.

Through the Writing Workshops programme, the British Academy aims to encourage and support early career researchers in ODA eligible countries to publish in high impact journals in the fields of the humanities and the social sciences, and enable them to build connections with academics and journal editors based in the UK and elsewhere.
