Abstract

Planning and accomplishing a publishable research agenda is part of a successful academic real estate researcher's career. This manuscript reports the insights and advice offered by seven people in the real estate field on how to make important contributions to the real estate literature. These people are all highly respected real estate researchers with many papers in prestigious academic journals to their credit. All have been recognized for their important leadership and contributions to the real estate field. These people were asked to offer advice and insights to those pursuing academic tenure and promotion wanting to make important contributions to the real estate literature, while taking advantage of the opportunities available to them by networking with academic scholars and practicing professionals worldwide.

Providing guidance and mentoring to new real estate researchers on interesting and useful research agendas, as well as advising on publication strategy, is an important role for senior real estate researchers in the American Real Estate Society (ARES). Such assistance enhances the tenure and promotion prospects of the next generation of real estate researchers and ensures that their contributions to the real estate body of knowledge will be more valuable. This review article provides inspirational research and publication guidance aimed to enhance academic career success; particularly for new researchers with the opportunity to network within the ARES community of real estate scholars and practicing professionals.

In preparation for the twenty-second Annual Meeting of ARES in Key West, Florida, April 19-22, 2006, five highly respected real estate researchers with numerous coauthored papers to their credit, were invited to participate in a panel discussion entitled: ''Creating A Research Network Through ARES.'' Subsequent to this Annual Meeting, each of the five panelists, Don Epley, Jim Webb, Stephen Roulac, Mo Rodriguez, and Graeme Newell, along with the panel's chair, Chris Manning, and the editor of the Journal of Real Estate Literature, John McDonald, was asked to provide advice and insights for a successful career in real estate research and publication.

These people possessing varied academic and industry experience and having diverse interests, temperaments, and lifestyles, were further asked to tailor their advice and insights for those early in an academic career pursuing tenure and promotion, but also wanting to make important contributions to the real estate field while taking advantage of the networking opportunities available to them through ARES.

Based upon many personal publishing successes, these people independently offer advice and insights for achieving a successful academic career. The topics covered include (1) research, writing, planning, and execution; (2) evaluating institutional promotion and tenure requirements; (3) self-assessment of personal interests, talents, and abilities for doing real estate research, writing, and publication; (4) networking strategies and methods; (5) international collaboration; (6) selecting relevant ''real world'' issues for academic research; (7) selection of co-authors; (8) targeting different types of journals; and (9) manuscript submission and review process strategies.

More importantly, these people explain how they make their lives enjoyable and satisfying while working hard to achieve high levels of recognition as real estate thought leaders and widely published authors. Each person begins with a brief summary of their past contributions to further the real estate body of knowledge. While a number of useful articles have been published in the Journal of Real Estate Practice and Education to help academics improve their teaching performance (Butler, Guntermann, and Wolverton, 1998; Achour-Fisher, 1999; Anderson, Loviscek, and Webb, 2000; Allen and Kaighobadi, 2001; Gibler, 2001; Manning and Roulac, 2001; Manning, 2002; Born, 2003; Gibler and Nelson, 2003; Wolverton and Wolverton, 2003; and Weaver and Michelson, 2004), very few, if any, articles have been published that offer research or publication guidance to help new faculty researchers achieve greater publication recognition and career success. …
