Publishing in Academia – Some Thoughts from the Trenches
Most academics have a love-hate relationship with publishing. We devote years to earning our advanced degrees and may spend decades performing in-depth research in our field, all the while writing and submitting articles on our theories, efforts, and findings. Yet many of us never received any training or much more than one-off advice, often flawed or highly biased, from an advisor or mentor on how to approach writing and publishing. This informal presentation will consider the lifecycle of a typical academic and present strategies to maximize productivity or at least minimize frustration.
