When I Write My Masterpiece
A paper that starts out with, “Academic papers are a bit like rock and roll bands: whether an audience finds them interesting is a matter of perspective, if not taste”, and ends with “If the world were made of candy, there could never be a Willy Wonka!” has to be read and discussed. Hence, it will be the basis for our upcoming meeting on the 15th.
The author mixing rock & roll bands with Willy Wonka, is no one other than Stephen Barley. The paper, “When I Write My Masterpiece: Thoughts on What Makes a Paper Interesting”.
