"This book provides a number of valuable observations applicable to the helping professions. Professor Furman emphasizes writing as a skill rather than an art and emphasizes the relationship between writing journal articles and practice. The exercises are useful to anyone getting started or experiencing writer's block."---Wynne S. Korr, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, Donald Brieland, University of Illinois

Writing scholarly articles can be a daunting experience, but it is a necessary task for many in the human service field. Furman takes a hands-on approach to helping readers succeed at scholarly writing and publishing. Using practice guidelines, case examples, and written exercises, he leads readers through each step of the publication process, from idea generation to revision and submission. The result is an invaluable reference book for scholars and practitioners alike.
