A Guide to Academic Writing

Synopsis

A comprehensive guide to academic writing and publishing, this volume approaches its subject from a descriptive foundation for understanding academic tenure and promotion decisions. The book then treats the considerations for selecting the avenues open to an academic for publishing: conference papers, grants, journals, scholarly books, texts, and popular or trade books. Each avenue is given a chapter-length discussion. Electronic media is also described in detail and the book concludes with a view of the marketing of the book product.
