Elsa Saarikkomäki and Natalia Ollus launch a method which they have developed for writing the summary/introduction section of an article-based dissertation. The article presents a concrete model, which includes instructions for fourteen peer meetings. The model is based on their own experiences writing the summaries of our article-based dissertations. They emphasize the benefits of peer support for the writing process, and the article seeks to inspire collaboration in the process of writing a paper. The article is aimed at doctoral researchers, supervisors and persons interested in the development of university education.
