Writing your journal article in twelve weeks; a guide to academic publishing success.


Writing your journal article in twelve weeks; a guide to academic publishing success.

Belcher, Wendy Laura.

Sage Publications


351 pages




Belcher (African literature, Princeton U.) draws from a decade of instructing graduate students and junior faculty on writing journal articles to present that same audience with this workbook, framing the process in tasks to be completed in 12 weeks. Each chapter (and week) is devoted to a specific step. These include: designing a writing plan, starting the article, advancing an argument, selecting a journal, reviewing related literature, presenting evidence, getting and using feedback, editing sentences, sending the article, and responding to journal decisions. Brief exercises to be completed within the book break down the larger tasks. The author also addresses readers who want to revise an existing work.
