Publishing for Tenure and Beyond.
Silverman, Franklin H.
This book provides graduate students and tenure-track junior faculty with information on how to develop an adequate publication record and offers information needed to maximize the likelihood of having articles accepted for publication by peer-reviewed professional, scientific, and scholarly journals. The focus of the discussion is on how editorial boards and tenure communities actually function. Some of the information in the book comes from interviews with experienced academic authors; most is the result of 30 years of involvement with scholarly writing and publication and the tenure process. The 14 chapters include: (1) "The Publishing for Tenure Game: An Overview"; (2) "Fear of Writing for Publication"; (3) "Selecting a Project"; (4) "Publishing Options"; (5) "Peer Review"; (6) "Creating an Article, Book, or Other Material"; (7) "Submission Strategies"; (8) "Copyright and Fair Use"; (9) "Ethical Issues"; (10) "Preparing the Publication Section of a Promotion and Tenure Application"; (11) "Funding Research and Publication"; (12) "Publishing with a Collaborator"; (13) "Publishing beyond Tenure"; and (14) "They Rejected It! Now What?" (Contains 37 references.) (SM)
