  33. 33. ESE:O Methodology: BUILDING VOICES FROM THE SOUTH<br />100% online academic writing and publishing workshops <br />(6 months)<br />
  34. 34. ESE:O Methodology: BUILDING VOICES FROM THE SOUTH<br />Step1:<br />The ESE:O methodology integrates researchers with no previous experience working online and tackles connectivity issues through:<br /><ul><li>induction and integration to online community through various media, not only the Internet;
  35. 35. user-friendly online environment;
  36. 36. progressive, cummulative assignments that facilitate the writing process.</li></ul>In our experience, most participants are not readers of international journals. Through the program they become familiar with a new world and develop strategic skills to situate themselves and navigate in it. <br />This way, the ESE:O methodology aims at visibilizing local voices and results to international audiences.<br />
  37. 37. ESE:O Methodology: BUILDING VOICES FROM THE SOUTH<br />Step2:<br />The ESE:O methodology aims at developing strategies for the visibilization of local voices and the dissemination local results based on an approach oriented towards:<br /><ul><li>Building strong voices;
  38. 38. Presenting research results;
  39. 39. Building skills for engaging in global conversations: becoming familiar with the dialogues (by reading journals), designing entry points into theses conversations and building strong arguments. </li></li></ul><li>ESE:O Methodology: BUILDING VOICES FROM THE SOUTH<br />Step3:<br />During this step participants face the task of writing up the first whole draftof their paper. Even though the methodology focuses on putting together a body of work through a flowing process, desertion at this stage can be high (up to 33%) due to time restraints and heavy work loads (no time for writing). <br />Motivation is key. We have more success when participants are part of an institution committed to the process. Peer editing plays an important role, but it is difficult to implement when there is too much fragmentation. <br />
  40. 40. ESE:O Methodology: BUILDING VOICES FROM THE SOUTH<br />Step4:<br /><ul><li>This stage entails submitting the final version of the paper to a journal and the follow-up process involving contact with editors and incorporating feedback from peer reviewers. The building of social skills and motivation to venture into an unknown world play a key role at this stage. Participants in ESE:O’s course and workshops are encoraged to be responsible and professional as they establish a relationship with editors and other “literacy brokers” in the field.</li></li></ul><li>Roles in methodology<br />
