Prof. Mark Hayter, Head of Nursing Department, Faculty of Health and Education, Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), delivered a lecture at the Wudang Nursing Forum initiated by Nursing School, Hubei University of Medicine (HUM) on January 14th, 2022, at the invitation of Hubei University of Medicine. The event was presided over by Ms. Cheng Li, associate dean of Nursing School. Vice President Yan Shirong delivered a welcome speech at the lecture.
Professor Hayter began his talk on Successful Writing for Academic Publication in a humorous manner by interacting with the attendees about their desire to write. Taking his own academic experience as an example, Professor Hayter explained in detail how to select scientific research journals for publishing and the significance of influencing variables and shared seven golden standards of academic writing in English. Using many cases, Hayter emphasizes the importance of submission guidance, extensive literature reading, writing practice, seeking criticism and suggestions, the publication process and editorial responsibilities, writing for international readers, dealing with publication refusal, and so on.
At the end of the lecture, Professor Mark Hayter discussed with the participants about their frequently-encountered problems during publication submission. He encouraged that the best authors are those who are good at revising the article.
As the first academic exchange under the MoA between MMU and HUM since 2021, Professor Mark Hayter’s involvement in this forum is undoubtedly an important step for the two institutions to make joint efforts and move forward in their cooperation in the future.
