Gert J. J. Biesta is a widely known and respected scholar in the field of education. He has published a large number of articles, books, chapters and other work.

This article is a selection of some of the topics that have been discussed, with a focus on: (1) changes and developments in journal publishing over the last 15 years, including online publishing, open-access journal options and the increased number of publications in the field; (2) considerations for early career academics and emergent researchers in relation to publishing; and (3) questions about journal rankings, quality control and the peer-review process. Biesta shared his thoughts based on his vast experience in the field and his international experience, having worked at universities in various European countries and with a wide range of scholars around the globe.
