Suggestions on Writing for Publication in Language Learning Journals.
Jacobs, George M.
This paper presents suggestions for writing and publishing articles in second language teaching journals, focusing on three areas: getting started (appreciating the benefits of writing for publication, starting with good ideas, efficiency, considering options beyond the typical article, choosing a good topic, replicating research, cooperating with other professionals); putting the ideas in writing (connecting ideas, reader-friendliness, use of data, use of visuals); and collaborating with editors (choosing the right publication, following the directions given in the guide for contributors, including a cover letter, having patience, accepting that not everyone will agree, treating editors as colleagues). The suggestions are specific, and are presented in outline form. A brief article on attention to detail is appended. (Contains 10 references.) (MSE)
