You want to do & publish more impactful academic research without working longer? Welcome!

My first paper took over a year to write. Well, I abandoned it midway and returned to fix the methodological problems that plagued the article. It will eventually be co-authored instead of solo-authored as initially planned.

Today, it takes about two months to write a paper, sometimes much less, depending on the type of paper. But I’m still | learning and fine-tuning my processes. Efficiency is key.

Ambitious? I know, but research shouldn’t consume your entire life, too!

Hi, I’m Godwin. I lecture Property Economics at the University of Melbourne.

On Linkedin, I explore my learnings and experiences – the strategies, frameworks and systems – that will help make your research life productive, enjoyable and balanced so you can all have time for the other important stuff, leisure and spending time with the people you love.

Hopefully, you’ll be inspired and find a strategy that improves your efficiency in undertaking impactful research.
