Take a look at four tips below.

1 INVESTIGATE
Together with my colleagues at the Van Vollenhoven Institute, we built the Leiden Law Methods Portal to support you in designing sound research projects.

 

2 WRITE

If you read one book on academic writing, make it The Craft of Research. The most recent edition has been written by Wayne Booth, Gregory Colomb, Joseph Williams, Joseph Bizup & William Fitzgerald. It's an academic lifesaver.

 

3 REVISE, RESUBMIT...

It's part of the job. Frank Baumgartner shared his revision memos. You can use them for inspiration in your communications with editors.

 

4 SPREAD
When you have published your research, make sure your audience can find it! Check out this overview.
