Beedon, Laurel; Heinmiller, Joseph
This booklet is designed to guide educators through the necessary steps to writing for publication in educational journals. The first section discusses the steps in the writing process, from first thoughts on a topic to the final draft. The next section deals with identifying and selecting a publisher, whether to write a query letter, and what criteria one journal uses when selecting unsolicited manuscripts for publication. The third section outlines technical requirements for manuscripts, including the use of graphics and seeking permission for extensive quotes. A selected directory of education journals and suggested references for writing style, technical style, and information about publishers also is included. (RL)
