Top Ten Musings about Publishing Qualitative Manuscripts: Managing the Devil in the Details
Palladino, John M.
Online Submission, Handout presented at the "Panel of Journal Editors on Ins-and-Outs of Publishing" at the Qualitative Research Conference (St. Louis, Missouri, March 4, 2011)
The purpose of this presentation was to engage in dialogue with editors of other qualitative journals and conference participants about the common roadblocks that hinder the publication possibilities for qualitative research studies. All audience participants were conference presenters and/or qualitative researchers, novice level and above. The format was designed to address the often dismissed minute details about publication that limit qualitative researchers' chances of publishing their manuscripts. Thus, the presentation focused more on a manuscript's format than content. The list that follows includes ten such details, each with examples and recommendations of how to address it. The intent was for conference participants to use the list as a quick checklist throughout their writing process and as a self-editing tool once finished writing a manuscript. The ten recommendations were all subjective and based on the author's experience of communicating blind-review feedback to authors who submit manuscripts to the "Journal of Ethnographic and Qualitative Research" ("JEQR").
