Chronicle: Really Obvious but Ignored Guide to Getting Published

Kirsten Bell, writing for the Chronicle of Higher Education‘s Vitae, offers sage advice to authors seeking publication:

  • Know the journal to which you want to submit. (Hint: Actually read articles from several of the most recent issues and read the author guidelines usually found on the journal’s web site.)
  • Nominate reviewers if given the option.
  • Don’t make a prior rejection of the ms obvious. (Hint: In your communication with an editor, personal confessions are not required.)
  • Learn how to write a scholarly ms before submitting one. (Hint: Read and carefully study the genres, formats, structure, and language of your discipline’s articles.)
  • Be persistent.
