How to Publish Your Communication Research: An Insider’s Guide

How to Publish Your Communication Research: An Insider’s Guide

September 2001 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Well-known journal editors and Communication scholars Alison Alexander and W. James Potter provide an insider's guide to getting published in scholarly communication journals. Alexander and Potter begin with a review of the manuscript submission process followed by coverage of writing traps that should be avoided. Additional chapters, written by eight other distinguished journal editors, tell prospective authors what editors and reviewers look for when deciding which articles should be published and which should not.

Researchers, students, and professionals will find helpful and practical discussions on writing literature reviews, theoretical essays, quantitative and qualitative studies, interpretive inquiries, and critical, cultural and historical essays.
