Practices To Improve Your Chances for Success When Submitting Research Articles to Academic Journals.
Donald, Ralph
This paper begins by stating that if a writer of scholarly articles wishes to succeed in getting published, he or she must become a good communicator, a good reader of instructions, and knowledgeable about his or her audience. The paper suggests that a beginning writer should submit the first few manuscripts to regional rather than national journals in the relevant discipline, or to the interdisciplinary journals that are accepted by the writer's department. It also explains how an individual should act (with step-by-step advice) when a call for papers is seen in a journal. The paper notes that technical matters as well as style and length are important when submitting manuscripts. It also points out that requests for revisions should be expected, since editors and reviewers are looking at the big picture and want to make their journals better and sharper. (NKA)
