Weekly academic blog
13 July 2017 - Professor Jim McKenna
With a focus on the relevance of what is happening in the Carnegie School of Sport, the blog will help aid writing and discussion about the issues that matter right now!
On this platform, we will host ideas and concepts which are at the heart of our academic work and broader community, covering anything in the continuum of teaching to research.
To give you a flavour of what to expect from our academic team’s submissions, blogs may include themes such as hot debates on important topics, new approaches to interesting ideas, Q&As on fascinating subjects or how ground-breaking discoveries have changed what we understand about our subjects.
The list is not prescriptive - it shows the range of approaches our academic community may like to take. We will aim to be as inventive and relevant as possible, keeping you up to speed on current academic debates. So watch this space…
A note for our contributors: A blog is intentionally a short form of communication; small steps embed new behaviours, while the need for brevity sharpens writing skills. Ideally, contributions will springboard into more public-facing communications, including peer-reviewed letters, editorials and papers. Content can range 200 to 800 words, referenced (if relevant) and well edited. Remember, shorter pieces attract more readers. To find out how to submit your fully edited and proofed version, please contact the Carnegie School of Sport office.Professor Jim McKenna. Carnegie School of Sport Editor
