Scientific Writing Accountability Groups

SWAGs are designed as peer accountability groups to help participants structure their writing time and support each other in the effort to write research manuscripts and/or grants, etc.

  • A SWAG will consist of four to ten individuals (potentially from different disciplinary backgrounds) who will identify 1- to 2-hour time slots during the week when they are available to meet for ten consecutive weeks.
  • Faculty may self-initiate these SWAGS or join a SWAG organized by RCMI.
  • Programs will make a preceptor available to start each of the groups (explain the process, ground rules, etc.) and collect pre- and post-surveys.
