The Academic`s Guide To Publishing

First Edition


192 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
This definitive guide to successfully publishing social science research demonstrates that completing a project is only the first phase of research. Dissemination is the second phase, and it requires specific skills and knowledge. The Academic`s Guide to Publishing explains the different ways in which research can be disseminated: in journals, books, reports, the Internet, popular media, and conferences; demonstrates how the structures, practices and procedures involved work—making them easily understood and transparent; and situates research in the larger and changing context of higher education.
