Up the Publication Road. Green Guide No. 2.
Sadler, D. Royce
Guidelines concerning publishing in scholarly journals, with emphasis on internationally known journals, are provided. Much of the information applies to the social sciences and education and, to a lesser extent, to the humanities. An overview of the workings of the publication enterprise is included for the new author, along with a list of 10 reasons for publishing. Attention is directed to the main types of articles, journals, and publishers; the roles of editors and copy editors; and common procedures and requirements for publishing in the journals. Copyrights, clearances, and charges for the author are also covered. Manuscript production is considered, with attention to writing the article and the abstract, developing the title, using nonsexist language, footnotes, references and the bibliography, word processing, and internal review. Additional topics include submitting the article to the journal, submitting an article to other journals if it is rejected by the first, galley and page proofs, offprints, and grievances. A checklist summarizing major points about manuscript preparation is presented that covers substantive, literary, and mechanical aspects of the process. (SW)
