Publishing Articles and Presenting Papers: Guidelines for Success.
Halpin, Glennelle; And Others
Guidelines and helpful suggestions are presented for publishing journal articles and for presenting papers at conferences. The successful author should begin by reviewing the scholarly journals published in the field to find the best fit for the proposed article. Following the rules of the journal makes acceptance more likely and extensive rewrites less likely. Communication is a vital aspect of dealing with an editor and is important in terms of dealing with acceptance or rejection. Presenting a paper at a conference begins with understanding the type and level of the conference and the style of the presentation (e.g., whether it is a presentation or discussion session, a display or poster session, a symposium, a training session, or a round table discussion). As with journals, there may be rules to follow in presenting a paper. Having work submitted to ERIC is a way to share the results of one's efforts with others. Other details, such as working with a coauthor and finding sources of new ideas are reviewed. A participant activity worksheet is included. (SLD)
