Our workshops and events are designed for a wide range of research projects and processes. We also provide Do-It-Yourself workshop materials to explore at your own pace.

By working in partnership, the CSC aims to provide you with access to relevant workshops offered by Advanced Research Computing, the Office of Research Services, and the UBC Okanagan library.

Some of the workshops we offer include “Writing the Research Article,” “Selecting Quality Journals for Publication,” and “Research Data Management”. For current offerings, see our calendar below.

2023 CSC Writers’ Retreat: June 13-15

Registration is now closed

Join us at the CSC Writers’ Retreat to get a productive and healthy start on your writing project in a supportive environment focused on your goals! This 3-day in-person event is designed to help graduate students and postdoctoral fellows make progress on their writing projects. Register now as there is limited availability with priority given to those who register first. 

Centre for Scholarly Communication staff will moderate live discussion, facilitate writing sessions, and provide support for a wide range of scholarly writing projects. In addition, participants will receive a wide variety of online resources to supplement the retreat, which they can access independently and refer back to after the retreat is over. 

 We aim to have each participant make progress on their writing in a supportive environment, establish habits for personal writing success, and connect with their peers. We will be available to provide assistance at any stage of the writing process from brainstorming to final revisions. Resources and discussion topics include goal setting, writing motivation and time management, and health and wellness topics, among others. 

Here is a tentative Writers’ Retreat schedule: This schedule is tentative and may change. You will receive access to the final schedule before the retreat in June.
