We want to invite you to register and attend the ‘Aspetar Academic Writing Journal Club’—a unique online learning experience!

Starting on the 26th of January 2022, you will be able to join the Aspetar academic writing community’s journal club—a safe online space where we learn together by presenting and discussing the peer reviewed work of experts in the field.
