Dr. Clark Holdsworth

Senior Manager, Communications & Partnerships (LetPub)

Dr. Holdsworth oversees communications projects and partnerships at LetPub. LetPub has thousands of interactions with authors and journals annually. Dr. Holdsworth and the Learning Nexus Team filter these experiences into an intuitive and effective educational experience for authors and journal editors.

Join us on Tuesday, February 21st for our next LetPub Webinar Series installment. This month we are going to cover an important aspect of academia: the literature review. Importantly, we will discuss the planning, approach, and structure for an effective literature review.

Dr. Clark Holdsworth will highlight the components of a high-impact literature review:
• Narrative
• Concision
• Clarity

Too often, authors fall into the trap of a play-by-play retelling of every study on the topic. This is repetitive and fails to create a strong narrative. Recitation of the study findings provide little to no value to the reader. Instead, we will outline strategies for turning your literature notes into an insightful review!

A certificate of completion will be provided after the session.

Join this webinar at 8 AM EST Tuesday, February 21.
