Faculty members in higher education must effectively manage numerous priorities for success in their roles. Kathleen King and Ann Cranston-Gingras (2014), tenured professors at the University of South Florida, provide a roadmap for success in 147 Practical Tips for Emerging Scholars: From Publishing to Time Management, Grant Seeking, and Beyond.

In the "Introduction," King and Cranston-Gingras (2014) identify the text as a resource to address a compelling question in the field: How can faculty members succeed in developing scholarly careers? Drawn from their experiences and those of others they have mentored, the book offers relevant strategies for doctoral students, new and emerging scholars, and experienced faculty members in mentoring and advising roles. Some tips will, of course, be more useful or relevant than others for faculty at different points in their careers.

The book is structured with two opening text chapters. Chapter 1 frames the content by addressing two salient concerns for scholarly development: managing one's time for maximum effect and the lack of guidance or "operating instructions" often missing in graduate training and new faculty induction.

Subheading categories in the plan advise scholars to "Review and Reflect," "Work Your Plan," "Reflect on Challenges," "Continue to Network,"

A key takeaway, especially relevant for new and emerging scholars, is the importance of negotiating what the authors term the tyranny of the urgent--the myriad demands on faculty that can derail the goals of even the most committed scholars.

Chapter 2 presents an overview of how scholars might strategically approach and envision the academic career path in a more systematic way. Highlights include advice on planning strategies, conceptualizing role domains, and identifying the evidence sources appropriate for success in one's institutional context. …
