Writing for Peer Reviewed Journals: Strategies for getting published

An insider’s perspective on the secret business of academic publishing

Pat Thompson is Professor of Education in the School of Education, at The University of Nottingham and Barbara Kamler have co-authored Writing for Peer Reviewed Journals: Strategies for getting published

Avoiding a ‘tips and tricks’ approach, which tends to oversimplify what is at stake in getting published, the authors emphasise the production, nurture and sustainability of scholarship through writing – a focus on both the scholar and the text or what they call text work/identity work.

What the reviews say:-

“Excellent advice on how to structure the writing plan from the abstract through to article completion. I found the strategies clear without being constraining.”

“Great starting point on how to write peer reviewed journal articles.”
