What does publishing in academic journals involve? What constitutes good academic writing? What is a productive academic writing process? This book unpacks the process of writing academic papers. It tells readers what good papers look like and how they can be written. Busy academics must develop productive writing practices quickly. No one has time for trial and error. To pass external tests of research output we must write to a high standard while juggling other professional tasks. This may mean changing writing behaviours. Writing for Academic Journalsdraws on current research and theory to provide new knowledge on writing across the disciplines. Drawing on her extensive experience of running writing workshops and working closely with academics on developing writing, Rowena Murray offers a host of practical and tested strategies for good academic writing: Providing more than ‘hints and tips’, this book helps readers develop understanding of how writing happens, what good writing looks and feels like, what gets published and what does not and why Combines all dimensions involved in writing: rhetorical, behavioural and psycho-social Analyses successful published examples Uses boxes, checklists and bullets to vary the pace of reading and facilitate learning of key points Makes it clear why some practices fail and others succeed Helps academics and aspiring academics overcome writing barriers and blocks. This jargon free, user-friendly book is essential for the desk of every academic, postgraduate student and researcher for whom publication is an indicator of the quality of their work and ability. Reviews and endorsements: This approach provides scientists with a systematic step-by-step method of producing a paper for publication. The approach streamlines the process and provides strategies for overcoming barriers. Feedback from the professions using the approach was excellent: - "I have totally changed my approach to writing an article". - "I feel more productive and in control of my writing." - "The strategies of snack writing and writing in small sections has allowed me to progress." Dr Mary Newton, Practice Development Facilitator, Physiotherapy Department, Greater Glasgow Primary Care NHS Trust, UK Rowena Murray’s book is extremely useful for new lecturers. This book provides guidance, strategies and tips for all of the different writing tasks that make up the process of writing a paper. Whether writing the first draft or the final draft, this book enables and inspires academics to develop their own writing strategies and goals. Lorna Gillies, Lecturer, Faculty of Law, University of Leicester, UK Our experience is that Rowena's practical approach works for busy academic staff. Not only does it enable them to increase their publication output and meet deadlines, but it boosts enthusiasm for writing and stimulates creative thinking. "Get on that course!" is what our academics say to each other about Rowena's Writing for Publication programme.

This book provides a foundation and framework to enhance your understanding of the various processes involved in academic writing. The term, academic writing, here refers to the types of writing used in college level writing courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level. However, this book was not written simply to help you pass another English class or to get you through the next writing intensive course (although it will certainly do that). At some point you will be out in the real world (hopefully). Thus, the purpose of this book is to enable you to be an effective writer and thinker in all contexts including your personal and professional lives.

Ite(tm)s not easy getting published, but everyone has to do it. Writing for Peer Reviewed Journals presents an insidere(tm)s perspective on the secret business of academic publishing, making explicit many of the dilemmas and struggles faced by all writers, but rarely discussed. Its unique approach is theorised and practical. It offers a set of moves for writing a journal article that is structured and doable but also attends to the identity issues that manifest on the page and in the politics of academic life. The book comprehensively assists anyone concerned about getting published; whether they are early in their career or moving from a practice base into higher education, or more experienced but still feeling in need of further information. Avoiding a e~tips and trickse(tm) approach, which tends to oversimplify what is at stake in getting published, the authors emphasise the production, nurture and sustainability of scholarship through writing e" a focus on both the scholar and the text or what they call text work/identity work. The chapters are ordered to develop a systematic approach to the process, including such topics as: The writer The reader Whate(tm)s the contribution? Beginning work Refining the argument Engaging with reviewers and editors Writing for Peer Reviewed Journals uses a wide range of multi-disciplinary examples from the writing workshops the authors have run in universities around the world: including the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and the United States. This international approach coupled with theoretically grounded strategies to guide the authoring process ensure that people at all stages of their career are addressed. This lively book uses a combination of personal stories, student texts, published journal abstracts and excerpts from interviews with journal editors and publishers. Written in an accessible style, one which does not use the patronising e~youe(tm) of advice books, it offers a collegial approach to a task which is difficult for most scholars, regardless of their years of experience.
