Time: 2.00pm - 3.00pm

Writing journal papers is an important and major task for academic staff. In most cases, journal papers report the results of a research study and these are commonly described as quantitative or qualitative papers. Although there are overlaps in the way they are written, unique features are found in each type of paper. Being aware of the issues associated with the type of journal papers may enable authors to be more efficient in the manuscript preparation process. The purpose of this talk is to unpack what constitute a quantitative journal paper and discuss the issues associated with writing a quantitative paper. The following themes will be covered:

  • Unpacking a quantitative paper
  • Types of quantitative papers
  • Data analysis issues
  • Looking for an appropriate journal
