From Research Paper to Published Article.
Developed as part of a program designed to examine why so few graduates of doctoral programs demonstrate their scholarship through the media of books and refereed publications, the four papers in this series address the question of publication. The first paper explains why one should publish, explores differences between graduate term papers and publishable manuscripts, and offers guidelines for new would-be authors. The second paper examines the question of what to publish, noting that the common needs are to write true to the call of one's intimate subject; to relate that intimate subject to significant dialogue occurring in the field; and to take a risk, a calculated risk, in doing it. The paper also suggests six newsworthy topics on developments in speech communication. How to publish is discussed in the third paper, which offers some general thoughts and guidelines to keep in mind when preparing a manuscript for publication, selecting an appropriate journal or related outlet, and otherwise going through the review process. The final paper comments on the problems of getting published and stresses the need for manuscripts to be well thought out, well expressed, and appropriate to a particular group of readers. (HOD)
