Writing and Communicating with the General Public – An In-Mind Workshop

To aid psychologists in reaching larger audiences, In-Mind Magazine organizes the workshop "Writing and Communicating with the General Public" at ZPID in Trier.

Most scientists will probably agree that psychological research can be of great interest to society, but is often inaccessible to the greater public. How can you communicate your findings effectively? The workshop aims to support psychological scientists in this endeavor. 

Oliver Genschow and Jan Crusius, both In-Mind Magazine editors, will give the workshop at ZPID in Trier, Friday, October 25, 2019, 10 am - 5 pm.

You will start writing a psychological manuscript of your choice – but for the public. Before the workshop, you should prepare a first draft of an abstract and the initial paragraphs of the manuscript (in German or English language).

During the workshop, Genschow and Crusius will provide hands-on tips on how to spice up your writing and how to avoid frequent pitfalls. Afterwards, assistance to participants will be continued by the In-Mind editors, resulting in a submission of the articles in the online journal In-Mind. Arguably, more people than in any other peer-reviewed psychology journal will read your work.

ZPID will record the lecture part of the workshop on video and make it available via its media center

The workshop is limited to 15 participants. To register, please write to events(at)leibniz-psychology.org, stating your full name and academic position (postgraduate, PhD candidate, postdoc, professor). Registrations will be considered in the order in which they are received.
