Writing and publishing are at the heart of most academic and research pursuits. Many potential authors, however, feel lost in the seemingly Everest climbing-like process. There is little formal education that authors receive during their education. In this regard, John Bond’s new book's The Little Guide to Getting Your Journal Article Published: Simple Steps to Success (Rowman & Littlefield, 2023) seeks to pull back the curtain on the process and provide essential information to lead authors to their goals.
The Little Guide answers all of a novice author's questions in a direct and useful fashion. The book can be read all the way through or serve as a spot reference guide as authors wind their way through the process. The book is divided into 29 short, focused chapters. Sections include "Getting Started," "Selecting Potential Journals for Submission," "Writing Your Article," "Submitting Your Article," and "Publication at Last. "Bond brings in a wealth of experience from decades of working in world of scholarly publishing and as a publishing consultant for authors. In this podcast he discusses the contents of his book and the challenges faced in the domain of scholarly publishing today and the simple steps for successful publication.
