The purpose of this module is to allow postgraduate research students to develop and apply the skills required to prepare manuscript covering an extensive piece of work for publication in a computer science journal or as a book chapter. They will learn about the peer-review process and how to address both the editor’s and referees’ instructions.
On completion of the module the student will be able to:
• Discuss the current state-of-the-art in their research field
• Interpret results in the context of the impact on the particular field
• Evaluate results for potential publication in journal or edited book
• Formulate a hypothesis/question for the publication
• Comprehensively present and critically discuss the details of their research that can prove/disprove the hypotheses/question
• Draw conclusions on the work and articulate the significance of the research in the wider context
• Identify a journal or edited book with appropriate scope for publication
• Submit a manuscript to meet formatting standard as set out be the publisher.
This student will write and submit a journal paper or chapter for an edited book under the approval of the supervisor. Note that papers in edited conference proceedings do not meet the requirements of this module, and instead can be considered under CS860.
