About the Author
Wendy Laura Belcher is professor of African literature at Princeton University with a joint appointment in the Department of Comparative Literature and the Department for African American Studies. She wrote this book based on her experiences as an author, a managing editor of a peer-reviewed journal, and the designer of academic writing workshops that have helped hundreds around the world to publish their work.
"I know of no other handbook that focuses on this particular genre of academic writing in such a thorough and, therefore, useful manner. I am confident that anybody who actively works through this book--it is, indeed, a workbook--will eventually taste the academic publishing success in the book's subtitle."--Praise for the previous edition "Steven E. Gump, Journal of Scholarly Publishing "
"Even seasoned academic writers can find something useful in Belcher's book. . . . Offers sound advice, encouragement, and confidence-building strategies that help novice writers create/recreate a written text that could be publishable."--Praise for the previous edition "Chronicle of Higher Education "
"Belcher has updated the book for (a) wider readership, while maintaining the straightforward and engaging tone that made the first edition popular. Equal parts teacher, coach, therapist, and confidential informant, she draws on years of experience designing and leading academic publishing workshops."--Publishing Research Quarterly
"Offers a practical course in demystifying journal publishing and its place in scholarship, while guiding the reader in preparing an article for submission. . . . Belcher outlines trends and provides history and explanation for current practices in publishing, giving an insider's perspective to facilitate access--and as women and people of color continue to be underrepresented in the all-important metrics of article publishing, the issue of access is important in establishing work hierarchies in academia."--The Editing Company
