Aiming at Foreigners：Principles of International Dissemination
Producing academic publication is not only an important responsibility of scholars, but also the most challenging key steps involved in any academic work. Office of International Exchange and Cooperation has previously held a series of lectures on academic English writing strategies and techniques for teachers and students of BNU, which was well received by the audience.
In order to continue our efforts to support our university’s frontline research students and young research fellows with their scientific publications in international journals, and thereby enhancing the influence of our researchers in the global academic community. BNU is delighted to have Professor Robert Walker, Distinguished Professor of Beijing Normal University, to share with us his invaluable techniques, expertise, the underlying strategies and rationales in producing international academic seminars and written publications, and to discuss the basic principles of engaging with the international academic community, through a review of various case studies on related social science subjects, as well as his own academic career.
Professor Robert Walker currently holds the position of foreign expert at the School of Social Development and Public Policy of Beijing Normal University. He is Professor Emeritus and Emeritus Fellow of Green Templeton College, Oxford University, and a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Arts and a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences. In his academic career spanning multiple decades, Professor Walker published in total of 22 books, over 170 academic articles and contributions, and more than70 research reports, and enjoys a distinguished reputation in the international academic community.
