Academic Writing and Publishing

Do you struggle with submission notes and grapple with guidelines for authors?

This lively and readable guide will be invaluable for postgraduates, lecturers and researchers new to academic writing and publishing.

James Hartley calls upon his wealth of knowledge accrued over many years to help seasoned writers too, with practical suggestions based on up-to-date research.

Academic Writing and Publishing guides the reader through the process of writing and publishing. Packed with examples and evaluations of recent work, the book is presented in short chapters to reflect the writing and publishing process. Written in a lively and personal style, the advice is direct and practical. Divided into four parts, this accessible text:

• discusses the nature of academic writing and examines how different individuals tackle the task;

• dissects the journal article and outlines research findings on how to write its constituent parts;

• examines other types of academic writing: books, theses, conference papers, letters to the editor etc.;

• describes other aspects of academic writing — dealing with publishing delays, procrastination and collaborating with others.

James Hartley is Research Professor at the School of Psychology, The University of Keele, UK.
