Perspectives on Your Chances for Journal Publication.
Huff, W. A. Kelly
If his or her manuscript is carefully prepared and the prospective journal judiciously selected, the graduate student will find the publishing process fulfilling and professionally valuable. Submitting papers to conventions is a good place to start, particularly if the convention specifically requests debut papers, papers written by those who have not previously presented a paper at that particular convention. Students should revise their work based on the suggestions of their professors and those attending the convention. Eventually, they may submit it to an appropriate journal, one whose purpose, mission, focus, and degree of competitiveness is suited to the student's work. Finally, graduate students should take rejection in stride, and with minimal revision, resubmit their paper to another journal. (TB)
