A 30-Step Guide to Publishing in Scholarly Journals
Presenter: Anthony J. Onwuegbuzie, Sam Houston State University and University of Johannesburg
In virtually every institution of higher education in the United States and beyond, faculty publishing is used not only as an index of productivity that is employed by administrators to make decisions on faculty about tenure, promotion, and merit pay increases, but it is also used as an index of departmental, collegial, and institutional prestige. Unfortunately, a large percentage of faculty have never had an article published or have had very few articles published. Thus, it is clear that many faculty members need guidance as to how to increase their levels of productivity.
