Getting Research Published: An A to Z of Publication Strategy

Front Cover
Radcliffe Publishing, 2010 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 172 pages
Getting research published can be difficult and frustrating. Many authors experience long delays, high rejection rates and journal processes that can seem so opaque and arcane that even those who have successfully published are often unable to say what they did right. Understanding publication strategy can prevent or reduce many of these problems. This revised and updated edition of Liz Wager's popular and highly regarded guide uncovers the ethics, conventions and often unwritten rules of publishing in peer-reviewed journals and at conferences. It gives clear advice on how to choose the right journal, how to avoid delays, authorship disputes and many other problems associated with being published. The A-Z format makes this a clear, accessible resource relevant to readers with different levels of experience and different backgrounds, including students and healthcare professionals, medical researchers, and people working in drug companies and communications agencies developing publication strategies. 'A very readable and authoritative guide to every aspect of publishing in scientific journals. The book's layout means that readers are both provided with a routemap for publishing but can also find quickly information on the topics that might be bothering them.' Richard Smith in his Foreword From reviews of the first edition: 'Intelligently written, logical and solid.' BMJ CAREER FOCUS 'An essential resource' - NURSING STANDARD 'Subvert the system. Buy the book. Put it with the other reference books on your desk. And use it to get published.' EUROPEAN SCIENCE EDITING 'I would have no hesitation in recommending this book to colleagues. I wish I had had something similar when I started out!' CLINICIAN IN MANAGEMENT
