Resumen

Las publicaciones científicas, como el medio legitimado para producir y comunicar el conocimiento, comúnmente se utilizan para evaluar la producción individual de docentes investigadores y de sus universidades. En este contexto, las prácticas de escritura relacionadas con las publicaciones científicas ameritan mayor atención para su desarrollo. Sin embargo, en Latinoamérica son escasas las iniciativas que apuntan en este sentido. Los grupos de escritura constituyen un dispositivo de desarrollo profesional-académico adecuado para enfrentar estas deficiencias. En ellos los participantes comparten borradores para que sean comentados y, mediante la colaboración y el intercambio con otros, gradualmente ajustan sus escritos a las demandas de la audiencia, un aspecto clave en la escritura académica-científica. Este estudio de caso indagó el punto de vista de los participantes de tres grupos de escritura para explorar cómo estos grupos apoyan el progreso de los escritos para su publicación. El análisis de 10 entrevistas semiestructuradas indicó que esta iniciativa beneficia a sus participantes en tres áreas principales. Primero, aprender a dar y recibir retroalimentación en un espacio seguro y de bajo riesgo ayudó a perder el miedo a esta actividad de referato inherente a escribir para publicar. Asimismo, la posibilidad de recibir comentarios de una audiencia real y variada permitió mejorar los borradores. Finalmente, las reuniones sostenidas a través del tiempo motivaron a los participantes a marcar un espacio en sus agendas y establecer un ritmo para su escritura; a su vez, hacer espacio para escribir puso de relieve la falta de asignación horaria para cumplir con esta actividad.
