Dr Katharine Vincent and Ms Tracy Cull, in conjunction with co-authors Emma Archer van Garderen and Alex O. Awiti, have published a paper on writeshops in the latest issue of Environmental Development. The paper argues that writeshops, in which experienced published researchers provide mentorship and support to African academics to produce papers of suitable quality to succeed in the peer-review process, are essential to improve the outputs of African scholarship. The paper builds on Kulima's experience as mentors in the SEI-UNISDR series of writeshops in 2011.
