How to get research published in journals
You've finished the research, and you realize it's worth publishing. Your colleagues think so too. You know publication will enhance both your own standing and that of your organization. So what's stopping you? Lack of time? An unconscious fear of rejection? Conflicting priorities? In this, the first book to address the subject, Abby Day explains how to overcome these and other common obstacles to publication. She shows how to identify a suitable journal and how to plan, prepare and compile a paper or article that will satisfy its requirements. She pays particular attention to the creative aspects of the process. As an experienced journal editor Dr Day is well placed to reveal the inside workings of the reviewing procedure - and the more fully you understand this the greater the chance that what you submit will finally be accepted. For academic and research staff, in whatever discipline, a careful study of Dr Day's book could be your first step on the road to publication.
