Summary, in English

The Article Incubator (AI) is a course intended for PhD students at the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) at Lund University. The course provides a forum for students to discuss their current research, to develop academic writing skills, and to share best
practices in academic publishing. The AI is coordinated by a senior researcher at the IIIEE, while maintaining a student-centred approach, where all course elements are supported by students’ own contributions, reflections and experiences. In addition to sharing the article incubator as a pedagogical experience, we also seek to reflect upon ongoing challenges
including how to successfully manage diverse student backgrounds
and expectations in an interdisciplinary context.
