You also need to know how to navigate the social relations of presenting your work to the journal editor or book publisher—and how to craft your message to them—if you want to be successful. Written by a highly-respected publisher of qualitative research, this brief, practical resource shows you how to identify the right home for your work. It also guides you through the publications process-- from crafting the abstract to writing, production, and marketing--once you’ve found the best publisher. The author -demystifies what publishers and journal editors do, how they make their decisions on qualitative articles, research studies, and methods books;-discusses edited books, how to publish from your dissertation, and when to consider open access and electronic publications; and-includes case studies, appendixes, forms, and resources to help the aspiring academic.
