Research What You Love--and Get It Published Anyway.
Ames, Ina Ruth
The dual purpose of researching what an individual academic loves and using it for career advancement is a created possibility, not an organic outcome. Such possibilities can be created by using the following approaches: (1) research a subject of interest to yourself and then submit it to a population that is interested in the same material; (2) remember that a good research project is worthy of the highest form of recycling--reuse; (3) present a paper at one of the Speech Communication Association meetings and submit it to ERIC; (4) know who the audience might be for each type of research project; and (5) put a slant on the research (not the results) with the "spin" in vogue. Conducting research for publication is a joy and a delight when a person investigates a topic about which he or she is immensely curious. (A sample questionnaire about college speech communication programs is attached.) (SAM)
