Writing for Scholarly Publication.
Huff, Anne Sigismund
This book is intended to provide scholars with practical advice on writing for publication. Each chapter includes suggested practical exercises as well as explanatory material. Part 1 includes two chapters outlining the philosophy behind the approach, which emphasizes scholarly writing as conversation and the value of writing as a form of scholarly thought. Part 2 offers guidelines for planning the writing project. Individual chapters cover choosing a topic, identifying "conversants," and using exemplars. Part 3 systematically guides the reader through the generic parts of a scholarly paper. Its six chapters cover: (1) title and abstract; (2) making an outline; (3) introduction and conclusion; (4) presentation; (5) body of the paper (first full draft); and (6) revision, submission, revision, and publication. Five appendices include: a contrarian conversation with Mary Jo Hatch, a conversation on writing in English by nonnative speakers with Jone Pearce, a reviewing checklist (by Kurt Heppard), an exercise summary and semester course outline, and a summary of the book's advice. (Contains 21 references.) (DB)
